Baby Birds

We have some new neighbors.  A mama bird had built a nest a few weeks ago on our back porch on top of one of our outdoor speakers.  On Friday, Michael and I noticed that the nest looked like it was about to fall off the speaker, plus we hadn’t seen the mama bird since she built the nest.  Michael took the nest down and we found four eggs in there.  Not wanting to disturb the little eggs, or piss off the mom, we decided to put the nest in a big pot and sit it on the bench that is covered so it would still be protected by the rain.  I even set out a few Cheerios as a peace offering.  We saw the mama bird sitting in the nest the next day, so we were really excited that she wasn’t mad enough to abandon her eggs.  And this morning, a baby bird had hatched!  I snuck a couple of photos while the mama was out getting food.  It is so ugly that it is cute!  I’ll keep you posted on the progress…
