Before we went on vacation a mockingbird started a nest by our mailbox. Now, I've never seen a bird in all the years I've lived here actually use a nest so close to where people are daily....and to my surprise a few days after returning home...I found these tiny eggs in the nest.
Every time I go to the mailbox....I'm greeted by "little big mouth"...this one is the biggest of the bunch, as you can see, he or she is always the one with it's mouth open....waiting for dinner.
Now, when I check on them...I'm always keeping an eye out for momma, I don't wanna get her mad at me.
Her she is on my neighbor's roof.
And about 2 weeks ago, while home at lunch I noticed a scuffle in the palm tree next to my house and 2 baby doves had fallen out of their nest....momma comes to feed them each evening.
They've made a new home under my craft room window.....I hope they stay a bit longer.
