Empty Nest.

The baby Cowbird flew away last night.  Michael and I saw the mama bird trying to coax the baby out of the nest.  We watched as the bird got up to the top of the pot while the mama Carolina Wren bird (who is the same size as the baby) fed her adoptive kid.  She would fly away and sing to the little one.  There were actually two Carolina Wrens helping.  Maybe one was the papa?

We watched as the little bird jumped down from the pot onto the bench and hopped around trying to fly away.  I went outside to take a picture of the baby Cowbird before it flew away.  Then I went inside to cook dinner, and when I checked 30 minutes later the little one was gone.  We have really enjoyed seeing this play out on our back porch!
