We had yet another 3 inches of rain yesterday, so I went out to check the nest. There were only two baby birds in it and I didn’t have my camera with me. This morning, camera in hand, I checked the nest again. It was empty!
What is going on? Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a grey glob: a baby bird on a tree branch just to my left.
Oh. I backed away slowly, trying not to scare it any more than I already had. Then I noticed a second grey glob. Goodness, that’s a lot of growing each and every day.
I have no idea how long it will be before they start flying, but these might be the last photos I manage to get of the baby birds.
