For the Birds

About a month ago a robin built her nest in the rafters of our porch. About a week ago some baby birds emerged! They have probably actually been there for a while, just been too small for us to see. They were pretty quiet too. By the time they showed themselves to us, it was only a few more days until they were ready to fly. One day last week when I got up early to go walking, I saw one of the babies standing on the porch, then it flew over to the huge oak tree in our backyard. It didn't quite make it to the top of the trunk, so it was kind of clinging to the bark of the tree. After that day they all flew off and haven't really been back since. It was fun to have a little nature in our backyard last week!
