Flew the Coop

No sooner did I snap this picture, and the little guy took off!

I guess he was scoping things out and couldn’t resist…

Still three siblings left behind…

Probably going to be taking off soon, too…

005

They will definitely be missed…

 

Enjoyable Quote from a New Book

From a book review in the NY Times about “The Cloud Collector’s Handbook”:

Happiness doesn’t come from wanting to be somewhere else… happiness comes from finding beauty and a stimulation of interest in the everyday surroundings in which you find yourself.

A Bird in the Hand

Guess what landed at our doorstep?!

004

We checked the nest to make sure nobody was missing.

Still four babies — so this new, lost guy was from a different nest.

005

Maybe he left his own nest too soon…

006

He finally got lift off… and two fellow birds swooped in to escort him to safety…

like two fighter jets escorting a plane…

009

And off they went into the sunset…

Baby Bird Progress Pics

They’re almost a week old.  

They all have mohawks…

They are all alert…
