Happy Mother’s Day!

Yesterday while visiting Tina’s house in Sonoma, Mother Nature gave us a lovely gift.  While picking fruit from the over loaded lemon tree, a nest of baby black birds was discovered.  Campbell is seen checking out under the sweet smelling tree.

These fuzzy headed little ones are so very ugly they are really cute!  Tina thought she counted 7 hungry mouths. 

FuzzyHeadsI couldn’t help myself and poked my head into the tree many times to see the little critters.  They all immediately popped their little heads up, mouths open VERY wide in hopes of a yummy snack. 

FeedMe Mom black bird was busy most of the day zooming back and forth from her beautifully made home finding food for her growing family.  Mother Nature is a wonderfully clever gal – always a star on Mother’s Cay. 

Happy Day to everyone, especially all Moms….enjoy!

  4. Isn't it wonderful to watch nature at it's best. I have recently discovered a robin building a nest in the tree outside my bedroom window. She is now setting and I cannot enter my room without going to the window to see if everything is ok. Can hardly wait for the little ones to hatch.
