Splish Splash..... Bird Nest?

If I were a bird would I want to nest in a really Splashing place with lotsa action?
Everyday when I come home from work I park at the 'Splish Splash Car Wash' and get my mail. Last week I kept hearing baby birds and so I got to looking around. Now if you were a bird would you choose to build a nest at a busy car wash? I think not, but surprise! this is what I found. A Splashy place to build a nest

What letter would I choose.... It would have to be one that holds my nesting
material without falling out. The P was a good guess.....and yes there were
nesting material but no birds. They must have fledged.
I still can hear the I continue to look.

The Red R was my next guess. Bingo!

So I got comfortable and sat and waited. Soon...... mom arrives

Feeding baby #1

Is that all there was? Hey! We're still hungry in here

Awww come on.... mom!

Get me a big juicy bug

Hey! I'll be happy with a worm

or even a little tiny bee

It looks like mom is thinking this over.

Ok says baby... I'll shut up and wait

But Mom! There's a fly right out there ...get it for me!!

waa waa waa


All righty then we'll sit here and be good until you come back.

So devotedly birds tend to their young in the
nest, and so intuitively they gently nudge
them to flight.

The Butterfly sipper.....

Did you know that a butterfly tastes with his feet
smells with his antennae and can hear vibrations through
his wings? I have a hummingbird feeder on my office window
and was surprised to see this pretty butterfly sipping
sugar water.
The male hummingbird came along as seen
on the right.... but took one look and didn't stay.
The butterfly on the other hand took his good old time and
wasn't in a hurry to leave, if he felt the hummingbird
wing vibrations he didn't let on.

I tried to get in close but shooting through the window at an
angle wasn't easy.

The hummer sat below the window in my Rose of Sharon
waiting his turn.
