Baby Bird Season!
Every year I have a family of sparrows and doves nest next to my house. The above is the sparrow's nest. I finally realized (after several years), that the dove would continue to nest in my hanging plant (and eventually kill it) if I kept putting it out so early. This year I was smart and the dove moved her nest to a large bush next to the house. I have been watching both of these families for years and would be sad if they didn't come back. Today I was watering the plants and I could hear all the babies squawking in the nest. I can't wait for them to peak out and start learning to fly. Yesterday, I watched my neighbor's baby robins finally take flight. I felt unreasonably proud of them. Yay Mother Nature!
