A few weeks ago, as he commonly does, my husband was working hard in our yard, getting all kinds of spring clenaing out of the way. I helped him the first year we lived here. ... and then... well, that's not what this post is about. Anyway, he came inside for a quick break and said to me, "We have THREE birds' nests on the house. What do you want me to do with them?"
I responded, "Well, are they hurting anything?"
"Then, I say leave them be."
"Yeah, I figured you would say that."
Well, just take a look at this sweet Mother's Day surprise!
All three nests have baby birds living within, tweeting to their little hearts' desires! (I could only get pictures of one, so you'll just have to trust me about the other two.)
And all three mammas are caring for their babies, so lovingly... protecting and feeding them.
Isn't it such a coincidence that we would have THREE? :) My favorite number!
Happy Mother's Day, to my three birdie friends. May your baby birds grow up to love and thank you for all that you've done to bring them into the world. :) (...we're not going to focus right now, on the fact that eventually they'll fly away from their nests AND their mammas... just let's enjoy the moment. :)
