Tracking progress

Back at the beginning of May I noticed a birds nest in the small evergreen tree we have next to our front door.

I was a bit concerned though because every time we went in or out that door the mother bird would take off out of the tree. I was hoping that she wouldn't give up in frustration and abandon the nest. I was watching it every day to see how things were going.

I was thrilled the day I came home and discovered the eggs had hatched and there were three little newborns in the nest.



They just keep getting fuzzier every day.

They've come a long way since this last picture but that's still on my camera. I'll continue to watch the nest daily and will post more of my little guests.

Awww, this is adorable. We like to watch the ducks at our marina. The mommy will have her babies and they all swim together and then the fish start eating the babies. Mostly the momma will end with one duck and sometimes none. We have one momma this spring that ended up with five of her babies. They are too big for the fish now.

Have a fabulous day and weekend. My best to Duke. ♥♥♥

Wow, what a special treat! Good pictures, and I can't wait for more, to see them growing until they are adults! I hope they stay safe. We have birds that try to build in our bushes up against the house. But we also have lots of feral cats around...

Do bluebirds come from blue eggs?

Betsy Adams said...

Amazing how fast they grow, isn't it????? I'm always amazed when watching the Bluebirds grow... Those are Robins I think, aren't they?

Hugs,
Betsy
