Several weeks ago we discovered eggs in a nest on our front door wreath. Since then we have not entered or left through that door. I have peaked out of the window and just that movement would cause mama to fly from the nest. So, we have now completely abandoned the front of the house to give mama bird her privacy.
Our weather has turned cold in the last few days, with snow visiting again ever so briefly. I wondered if all were alright. I climbed a column in front of the house and with camera in hand zoomed in to take a peak!
At first I thought she had added additional feathering to provide warmth, then just in that moment the feathers wiggled so softly, so new to movement in this life...
They had hatched! Mama bird and nature know what they are doing and all are alright.
My job is to keep all at bay until they take flight.
