This was a surprise when I almost walked upon a mamas nest. Who knew it would be on the ground! I wonder if it was built there or if it fell from the branch of the tree. Either way, mama had her babies under cover with her wings. She flew away as soon as I got close to the nest but came back as soon as I left it. The kids had their mouths wide open when she flew away. It was so wonderful to come across this and I took some pics, not the greatest from my cell phone, but here they are for pull up a seat. I would think that there is nothing finer than pulling up a seat inside of a birds nest.
I just love their little beaks. It almost looks like they have fangs growing on the roof of their mouths. I don’t know what they are. Anyone?
The birds gather on the hill and I can hear them chomp chomp chomping and they’re all on the ground. So now I’m going to hike up there and see if there’s a group of little nests everywhere. News at 11:00…
Till next time,
