Modern Day Bird's Nest

The chicks have flown and the birds' nest has been abandoned. The family built it on a low branch that hangs over a well-traveled sidewalk. You could call it a mixed media assemblage. I have very mixed feelings about this nest: admiration for the way they repurposed the paper, plastic wrappers and bits of fibers that we so often find abandoned along the edges of yards and streets, but also frustration that thoughtless littering is still a way of life.
