Friday afternoon I was perusing the Marin Independent Journal and was surprised to see on the front page the headline, "Small shelters give warmth, comfort". As I read more, I it said "WildCare (San Rafael) seeks volunteers to knit nests for orphaned baby birds". They are asking for 1,200 knitted nests. I said to myself, I want to do that! It looked easy enough and I like to knit. So I read further hoping to find a link for the pattern. I found the website at www.babybirdnest.org. and found several pattersns for small, medium and large nests.
