Sorry, I digressed there. This blog is about birds. Yesterday in Houghton Lake when hooking up the electrics to begin our trip, I discovered a bird nest in the hitch box. I asked Den to take care of it and assumed (obviously wrong) that he'd done so. We have stowaways. We heard chirping this afternoon, and after investigating with a very strong flashlight, we found baby birds very deep down in the hitch box. Mama must be frantic back home. We were going to continue our journey tomorrow to another campground for a few more days, but now we'll be heading home instead. Hoping the babies will be strong enough to weather the journey, and then that their mama will be waiting for them. I hope by this time tomorrow, my birds of a feather will be flocking together.
