A small tree in my backyard held a little surprise. A nest with three eggs. I told myself I’d photograph the progress frequently….then I got distracted (squirrel!).
By the time I took my camera outside, one baby had hatched and grown up!!
Mama bird was NOT very happy that I was looking in her nest…
The next time I went to check, mama bird had kicked the baby out of the nest!!! All that was left was the two eggs that never hatched.
ps – if you have a little time to waste and want to watch something cool, check out this video of a robin hatching from its egg.=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-
