The Little Birdie that Could (SouthPark Nature)

Ray was sitting out on the veranda this morning and watched this little baby fall from the nest. He kept trying to fly and finally got enough height to land on the fence's cross-bar. He tried and tried to fly off of the fence but, couldn't. The mother kept squawking at him and he just would not leave the fence. Ray called me outside and we watched for a few more minutes; still, he was not moving from his perch!

 

The little birdie that could

 

I thought I would go snap an up-close photo of him and as soon as I did, he mustered up the strength (or courage, not sure which one) to fly! We haven't seen any of his siblings leave the nest yet, nor have we seen him again - we hope he has flown off into the wild blue yonder...and lives happily ever after!

 


 

 

Living in SouthPark is a real treat - we live right in the very center of the city but, we are surrounded by nature. If you think you'd like to live in SouthPark, let's talk! I'm happy to give you the tour of our amazing community!

Our baby birds have left the nest - and I have no idea about their fate. It's better that way. :)   Nice that you got a chance to see the little guy take his first successful flight. D

Debe sooner or later we all need to leave the comfort of our nest and learn to fly

What a charming story, Debe Maxwell, CRS! Thank you very much for sharing. We should all stop and enjoy more moments like this in life. (This also reminds me of Petrie from "The Land Before Time" who was determined to fly and overcome his fears which - spoiler alert! - he did!). - Tim

Oh, what a cute story, Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, CRS 602-380-4886! We have done that before too - this nest was not where we could see it well but, we sure did hear them when they were hungry!

LOL Yes, our 'expanding family' has flown the coop, Roy Kelley!  So, we're back to 2 humans, 2 dogs and one cat who rules the roost in our household!

I had the same thing happen earlier in the week with a hawk - they are so darned fast, I just could not, for the life of me, capture him!

Happy Wednesday, Kathy Streib

I hope they all made it, Will Hamm! We're not hearing any more babies chirping so, they've flown the coop now. I had to say a little prayer for them, you know!

I wish we had more moments like this to savor, Tim! It really does give us a real appreciation for nature, doesn't it?!

I should have turned it to video but, it was so dark (with the sun in front of me) I didn't think it would show up. That would have been really cool though, Grant Schneider
