Deep inside an evergreen bush a robin is building a nest. She is not alone. With help from her mate, the nest takes form. Twigs, sometimes longer than they are, grasses, bits of fluff. A well choreographed dance. One at a time, in one side and out another. Drop the building material, sit on the pile and twist and squirm to shape it.
