Bird nests (Or: The A in Hema)

As I was walking past Hema a few days ago, just after 8AM, I noticed something peculiar in the A of the logo. A bird nest:

A closer look:

Good choice for a nest — the capital letter (A) offers the most protection from predators.

    Predators….AND the weather (if it’s not cold, it’s raining. If it’s not raining it’s windy..etc)

  2. Good choice of place for a bird’s nest, as you can notice the ridge above the letters has them ‘anti-bird-spikes’ on them.. So this is most likely the only place they can go.

  3. It’s actually HEMA (and not Hema), an abbreviation ( Nice letters. Good place to sit and have a coffee. Although birds don’t drink coffee I suppose 🙂

  4. Update: they have since cleared out the nest and installed anti-bird spikes. Not that there aren’t enough birds in the area already. 😉
