I wanted it to be a work of art. Not just any old bird house, but the equivalent of an opulent five star luxury hotel. And why not? My prospective occupants would be the crème de la crème of the feathered wing society. Nothing but the best for them.
I expected these magnificent birds to flock to my nest. But I was disappointed that, even after a few weeks, no fine feathered friends showed up. Where did I go wrong?
But imagine my surprise and delight when I woke up one morning, checked the nest, and found four eggs within it.
I took a picture of the eggs and sent them to an ornithologist friend of mine. He said that those eggs most likely belong to a common quail.
Common quail? Well, I’m going to be a great host, even if my feathered guests are mere commoners!
