Remember from a few Sundays ago we had little ones for new neighbors?
They hatched soon after we shared them with you.
And over the past weeks they've grown and grown.
And here they are yesterday, getting ready for their flying lesson. The Momma bird doesn't share their nest at night anymore, it's way too full. And yesterday, she sat on the fence post and tweet, tweet, tweeted away, encouraging them to take their first steps.
Last year we had a snake get to the nest before they were able to grow up. But this year Mum put down organic sulfer around the porch, the porch posts and the rocks around the deck and we haven't seen a snake yet this year. Looks like it may be working!
