The Summer of the Birds

After our Memorial day cookout, we had just left our canvas chairs folded up and leaning against the wall. The next time we went to get them out, we discovered a bird had made a nest in one of them!
                                      there were 5 eggs in the nest. we left the chair where it was, and blocked it                                        off so that the dogs couldn't get to it.

                                    the eggs hatched



                                   
                                           Momma bird fed her hungry youngsters





                                      and the babies hung around just long enough for our cookout on July 5 and                                        6 .. and then on the 6th? they left the nest one by one and flew away :)

                                        Very cool!!
