Speckled mousebird nest destroyed in storm 😥

A few days ago, a gale, accompanied by hail, destroyed this beautiful speckled mousebird nest in Port Elizabeth.

In the days leading up to the disaster, my good friends had been watching the mousebirds build the nest, which was not finished.

There was no evidence of eggs or chicks.

You can see the size of the nest by comparing it with the tennis ball.

For the mousebirds it’s “Back to the drawing board”.

Very sad. but nature will bounce back. 🙂
