turned into these!
How cute are they?! We've all been watching so they don’t fall victim to the prowling neighborhood cats. There are only two, so not sure if the third one didn't hatch or just didn't make it.
Then, yesterday, the mother called to tell me that we have baby birds! Or, at least one. Since our nest is so high up, it’s hard to say. If we didn’t occasionally see a bobbing down-filled head, we wouldn’t even know. We wondered though because we've occasionally spied her standing on the edge of the nest since Sunday.
I’ve only seen one head, but when she feeds, it appears the mother bird goes deep inside the nest, so there may be at least one other. I’m hesitant to get a ladder and take a peek, but I may do it this weekend just to see!
I checked on ours this morning, and in spite of last night’s storm, the nest is still firmly in place. The mama was busy serving breakfast but since she stiffens when I’m out there, I didn’t try to get a shot. Those young’ns (or singulary if there is just the one) need to eat!
