A bird's eye view

The second little bird flew off when I pulled out my camera and started snapping photos. But she hovered nearby protecting the nest.

I was picking up my rental car at the Budget Fastbreak drop-off station near Los Angeles International Airport when I spotted two little birds tending to their nest in the rafters. I stopped and watched their activities for almost an hour. I wondered: what motivated them to pick such a high-traffic location to raise their precious babies?

I'm tempted to make a Budget -- or is it Budgie? -- joke. But I'll restrain myself.
