Birdnest in Fireweed? (14)
|... aka National Aboriginal Day|
Is this a bird's nest in Fireweed? Well hidden from prying eyes? Evidence of a feast for young birds that have long since left the nest, and merely left a skeleton of a cod behind?
I fear not! This alas, alas, is evidence of the ignorance motorist - hell bent to get to some place in an awful hurry - and the destruction that is left behind as a result of "barreling thru" ...
Many, many roads in Nova Scotia run thru rich natural areas. I.e. right thru the habitat of fourlegged creatures that don't always see the "CAUTION" signs placed by devoted DoT workers!
The result? Mortally wounded creatures that end up dying a slow death next to the motorways.
This "nest", in reality a "Final Resting Place", was a mere six feet from the pavement of the highway that crosses Pennant Brook, near Sambro.
Can you figure out which creature died here?
This shot-spot is less than a stonethrow away from this shot ...

Yeah,sometimes you see not so funny things along the road,I have seen many victims here as well,if you drive a bit slower and pay a bit more attention,the hitting chance will reduce a lot but will I suppose never be nill,I post a picture I took about a year ago in wintertime when I was out for a walk,I dont know if it were carcasses hunting leftovers or maybe a kind of feeding station ,but it did not look/smell that nice,things you want to forget quickly.
