    3.PhotoGraphy

We were lucky enough that we found a nest of a crew downstairs. That was close to the roof so we used a ladder to capture a close view of that nest. Honestly speaking the photograph is not much pretty, but I’m proud to uncover it as that was made by my little kids. We don’t have any pic of crow not of eggs, but its ok as kids are familiar enough with crow.
