This a.m. while having my coffee I couldn't help but notice all the flurry of activity out back. The first two little visitors were these cuties.And then I spotted this Brown Thrasher having a big time in the bath. "Hey, how many of you kids are still in there?" Mr. or Mrs. Bluebird was trying to coax out another baby. It seems like they have been trying to leave the nest for a couple of days now. My hubbie caught these early this a.m. He looked like he was pretty comfy in there.But one had left the nest and sat perfectly still while hubbie took his photo."Don't mind me, I'm just sitting here waiting on mom/dad to show me how to fly."
On a sad note I came home from work today and hubbie had found a large pile of blue/gray feathers right below the nest. We think something got one of the babies. That makes me so sad that they lost one of their children.
Right now there are still two left in there. They are still being active so hopefully they will fly away soon.
