Brownstone Bird Nest (Skywatch Friday)


Birds are singing and building nests all over Selma these days, and one bird family claims home in a decorated tree outside the Brownstone Manor.

This 1904 sandstone often hosts celebrations downstairs and in its courtyards. It is said that F. Scott Fitzgerald, who was a frequent visitor here, based his novel, The Great Gatsby, on this house.

Looks like the birds have a bit of a mess in the tree. Hate for the lights to be turned on when they are trying to sleep.
