wide world today.
The last I saw of them, they were flying awkwardly across the new Spring grass, their mum screaming frantically behind.
I could have swore I saw her covering her eyes, with her wing !
Stay safe my little friends .........

I'm sure it won't be much longer before they'll be trying out their new wings.
I've padded the porch floor with thick towels, in the event they tumble head first, out of their cozy little abode.
I'm doing my best to keep all cats, at bay......

Woods have laid dormant for who knows how many years, and the undergrowth is thick and impassable.
The main problem are the numerous piles of dead trees, some of them choked with invasive poison oak and ivy vines.
There is a wet branch running through the back of the land. Deer, wild turkeys, fox, and coyotes have all depended upon it for survival.
It has become blocked with fallen trees, and we are faced with cleaning and restoring it, so it is functionally sound once again.
Undergrowth filled with poison oak
Building a new workshop.
Hoping for lots of new birdhouses when finished :)

Not the best picture I'm afraid, but I wanted to get as close as I dared, and show the new arrivals......
All three eggs have hatched, one of the babies, was hiding beneath the other two.
I've named them Larry, Daryl, and Daryl :)
On the nest.
Warm blue eggs
Beneath your chest.
Hatch, hatch, hatch.
Call for food
Dad goes to catch.
Brings food back.
Stretch for their snack.
