My Fine Feathered Friends!

Real Estate Agent with Prudential CT Realty

About a week ago, I posted a picture of three bird eggs that I found in a nest in the Christmas wreath that I left up too long. I was surprised to see the nest and the eggs.


The only reason that I saw the nest was that every time I opened my front door, a bird would fly out of it. When I went to see where the bird was coming from, I saw the nest.  I hated that I had disturbed the bird so often by my frequent coming and going, so I started leaving my house through another door.  After all, the bird was just trying to do its job. Did I really have to make it so difficult?


Today, I decided to check on the progress because the bird was still flying out of the nest every time I went to get the mail. I was hoping the eggs were still there, but they weren't there because they had hatched.


I snuck up to the nest with my cell phone so I could get a picture. It's not very clear but there are definitely baby birds there. In a few days, I hope to get a better picture before they leave the nest.


Ah, spring! Isn't it wonderful?

Aahh! Isn't Mother Nature wonderful?  And it takes a special human to care enough about these new lives to change up her entire routine to accomodate them.

Have to love spring and all the baby animals we are starting to see. I've been seeing a lot of ducklings lately and even got a picture of a fawn the other day.

Peggy you are lucky that was not a blue jay, she would have done more than just fly away.
