The Birdnest in the Mailbox

by Stephanie Suesan Smith, Ph.D. on June 29, 2010

My mailbox has a bird nest in it.  The large rural mailbox was smashed with a sledge hammer by some neighborhood boys and it left a small opening on one side.  A wren decided it was a good place for a nest.  Overnight she built it and laid an egg in it, as if she knew that once an egg was in it, I would not bother the nest.  The mail lady is careful when she puts the mail in, I am careful when I remove it, and the eggs hatched.  Today I saw the first feathers on the sleeping babies when I got my mail.
