Are those thorns on those sticks she used for the nest? Wouldn't want to be her baby!

Looking forward to seeing some horn billed thrasher babies.

Even worse than those scary looking large thorns (lots of birds nest in even worse looking cactus for protection from predators) - may be the heat from all that sheet metal - very close to the bird eggs in the nest. Hopefully , there is a cooling flow of air in the building eave area - that protects the birds from the blazing summer heat? What an incubator! Maybe the parents have to fan the eggs to keep them cool during the hotter daytime periods - instead of sitting on them - to keep them warm?

I saw a thrasher this morning with a twig in its mouth and when I whistled it came down but I had to yell to keep it out away from a dog. This morning it was so beautiful with the sun coming up, the birds singing and perfect weather. It reminded me of a storybook here near San Antonio.
