365/351 Where Have They Gone?

Nest in Tree

365/351

The berries are red; ripe for the picking. The nest is empty. Do fledglings return to the nest after they learn to fly? Do they eat the berries from the trees in which they were hatched? I look at the berries; I look at the nest. I wonder how they exist together but do not contribute to each other. And yet, each one contributes to the life of something. How amazing that food and housing in this context allow two different species to live, one during the spring/summer, the other during the fall/winter.
