Throwback and Thankful Thursday
The last of our bluebird babies fledged this week. Who can blame those little birds for wanting to leave their little box where they’ve been crammed in for several weeks! And with feel like temperatures over 100 degrees, I can see why they would want to leave.
It reminded me of two years ago when we were still living in Delray Beach. To our surprise, chose our back yard for her maternity ward. In fact, we’d walked by her several times before we noticed her.
There were 12 eggs but sadly, none of them hatched. When it looked as if mama peahen was going to sit on them come you-know-what or high water, we waited for her to leave and removed the eggs. (which were beginning to become quite...well, you’ve smelled rotten eggs, haven’t you?)
So why Throwback and Thankful? The throwback is obvious. But I’m thankful for Mother Nature sharing this remarkable event with us.
How cool was this?
Larry used the Alfred app on his iPhone to
record movements by the peahen.
