Life and Death in the Garden
We came back from our trip to trip to New York to a strange rustling in one of the pots in our garden. We peered in, thinking a new nest might've been established in our absence.Turns out that some finches had gotten caught in between two of the pots, and were stuck down there among the sunflower seeds.

I pulled out the inner pot and was rewarded with a hail of birds fluttering around my head. One took off right away, another flew up to the feeder and started eating, another was too freaked out and tired to move much, and one had died in the pot.
