Wrevenge of the wrens
Somebody apparently thought it would be a really cool idea to pry out all the birds' nests under the eaves at 42nd and Treadmill. It didn't occur to that somebody to remove all the nesting material from the premises, though, so while the War Council gathers in the cottonwood trees to the south, one nest has been rebuilt and a second is under reconstruction.
I don't think it's advisable to park over there today: those birds are pissed.
(Update, 1 pm: Three nests are now operational, and sentinels have been posted. They're not yielding this territory without a fight.)
