there is nothing particularly noteworthy about this nest except that it was in fact this exact rusty red color throughout. i have not altered the color in any way in the course of post-processing. which means that some sparrow chose to make its nest by choosing only grasses of this particular russet hue. it must have been a bird that did not need things to be perfect (there are a good number of loose strands), but that had certain opinions about the importance of palette when it came to decorating her home. a kindred spirit, in other words.
