Natural Inspiration

These are Red-tailed cliff dwelling sparrow. When I went to the Southwest for a couple of weeks with EcoExplorers I saw these nests tucked away in the cliffs at Chaco Canyon. I never saw birds inhabit them, but when I first saw them they were hard to miss. There were hundreds of these nests clustered together like a natural society. I felt intimidated by the vast number of these nests because these particular nests were abandoned and looked very fragile. Their empty holes all stared down at me like a collection of ominous eyes. How cool would it be to fill an entire corner with many of these figures ...
