today on the farm~

I was so saddened to see my neighbor mow down his 2 acre meadow today...I had been observing the red winged black birds building their nests over there and had wandered over to try to find some and take some photos of what may be in them...I feel if you are going to cut your grass or meadow, you should keep it cut, as that way the meadow beings won't depend on it for habitat...

this is what I came upon today on my farm~ which I am working on building permanent habitat, so no one can change it...
