Then this last weekend Joe brings in the cutest little yellow baby bird that he found in the yard. We discussed what we could do and felt pretty bad. It looked in good health but just to small to fly.
I went out where he found it and saw a nest above in the tree, Joe climbed up and said no its to old and in bad shape. So he took it out of the tree and we were standing there discussing where the real nest could be when along comes the mama bird. We go sit on the bench and watch for her to fly to the nest, well she goes right to where we took the nest down. AAAhhhh........we panicked.....oh no... it can't be. OK we decide to put it back and put the baby in and see if she will accept and forgive our intrusion.
Well she did, amazing enough, but everyday this little baby bird either falls or flies out of the nest several times.
So up the ladder we go to put it back in the nest, mama is still feeding the cute little thing and it has really grown in the last four days.
This eye doesn't look to be its best side, but then we all have our good side don't we.
Here is the little bird in its misshapen nest. We think the heavy rain and hail we had two weeks ago made it squish into a figure 8 and mama can not sit on the nest with the baby. But they are handling it the best they can and we keep an eye out for the little flyer.....hoping soon it will be flying the nest instead of falling straight down to the, thankfully, soft lawn.
Here is mama perched just below, the nest is on the right above her. She is a good mama and we are glad she forgives us and is sticking with her little chick.
On a flowery note I am enjoying my Iris this year, they are a fragile flower but are so beautiful.Hope your week is going well, we are enjoying some beautiful warm weather. Now if the wind would take a break my little friend could stay put.
