Bird Nest In An Army Tank

I had to laugh… while my wife (Mary) and I were traveling from Florida to California across I-10, we stopped at Chiriaco Summit in the California desert to stretch our legs.  Being retired from the Army, I couldn’t help but notice the Patton Museum with all of their old tanks and such.  Being the diligent photographer that I am, I promptly grabbed my camera and began to shoot.  Then it happened…

I noticed a bird flying around one of the tanks and took a closer look.  Sure enough, there was a bird nest in the barrel with a bird sitting in the nest!  Let’s face it, you can’t pass up a photo like this.
