Today's Best Shot comes from Helen Gaynes, a rising junior at Chapel Hill High School "I made a birdhouse in my fifth-grade class and did not think that much of it; I put it on my back porch and basically forgot about it. Now three to four times a year blue birds use it to lay their eggs in. For my family, watching baby blue birds hatch in the birdhouse is a rite of spring. I went outside one afternoon to see if any had hatched, and this baby had just cracked open its shell, being the first born of the season."
