Husband Informs Wife That Birds in Wreath Nest
Have Flown the Coop.
Details to come.
Our mother cardinal has somehow managed to remove her two fledglings
(they did not look ready to fly to me!)
and the mystery egg, since my last post.
I never got a chance to get a picture of the birds in their fluffy stage.
I waited too long!
Just odd how they all left without a trace.
I mean, how does a bird carry an egg?!
Fortunately, we have a new bird family to follow.
My son had mentioned seeing a robin sitting on a nest, in a tree, in our front yard.
He showed it to me today.
I could not wait to get my camera and "shoo" her off in the name of blogging!
All had to do was come within 5 feet of the tree,
and she flew off to a safe distance to watch me.
Took this photo with the zoom on my camera.
Isn't it amazing?
I can't believe my luck!
There are 3 eggs-- all robin's egg blue.
No mystery egg this time!
I am relieved for the mama bird.
All of the little birds will be hers.
The nest is a mere 4.5 feet off the ground,
in the crotch of this ornamental pear tree.
I stood a little on my tiptoes for the eggs in nest photo.
No ladder required!
I promise not to disturb the nest much,
but hopefully I won't miss the chicks' fluffy stage this time!
