"Roommates"

We have new roommates living with us at our house! Every year a mommy bird lays her eggs in the "beautiful" pillars in our front yard. Early spring we start to hear the eggs hatch and the chirp of baby birdies. We watch the mommy fly in and out of her nest providing food for her babies. Yesterday was their first outing. They were all over our yard -- trying to fly! They aren't quite strong enough to just take flight. They would try to gain altitude and end up flying into the fence or the wall because they couldn't quite make it. It was super fun to watch them.

As you can imagine ... our hound dog wanted to play with the baby birdies. All he got was the front door!

Darling little roomates! Great fun to watch then just keep trying. It won't be too long before your little baby bird wants to test his wings!
