Our little chirpy residents have flown the coop (or the nest)! I am ecstatic that they survived the extreme heat and our stalking kitty and the 5 ft snake (I'll post about it a little later). I tried so many times to get a picture of the eggs, but I guess they were deep down in the nest. After the babies hatched I tried again, but they would draw back into the nest when I approached. Finally, just the day before they flew away, my daughter caught this one peeking out. Isn't she sweet! Now my dear daughter advises me that we must leave the Christmas wreath up because the birds will come back next year, dismantle the old nest, and using the same materials, rebuild. Hmmm. Not sure about that, we'll see:)
You can just see the beak of the other one. She's a little more shy. After they flew away we found on little unhatched egg.
I just love the nest. I would really hate to destroy it.
Maybe a Christmas wreath, left out all year, isn't such a bad thing!
What do you think?
I hope you are having a great Wednesday! Thanks for stopping by. I'm joining Outdoor Wednesday at A Southern Dreamer, I hope you'll drop by.
