    Now This is a Bird House

    Just received an email whose content included the following:

    "Whether you're a bird person or not, this is stunning!!!
    Not to detract from the sheer magic of it, but in practical terms, how M A N Y trips would a bird have to make with that tiny little quantity of mud/clay it could carry? (And how far from the nest is the source?)
    If you take the construction of a circular bowl in your stride as instinctive, how the heck does the bird come up with the windbreak/entrance design that shields the eggs/chicks from the elements, and at what point in fashioning the bowl do they start to construct it?

    Even if you think you could build this…
    Try it without using your hands!

    And now…stop to consider this:
    Where did the knowledge to do this come from?
    TRULY THERE HAS TO BE A “MASTER CARPENTER”?"

    Continued on next post for Grand Finale!

    I'm really not a bird person, just made a bird house for my wife. Coincidently, I received the email about this nest building yesterday. However, I found this on http://www.wonderclub.com/Wildlife/birds/ovenbird.html Looks like a match. Oven Bird / Match
