Then there were two

So for about a month now I’ve been rambling on about Mama Robin and her baby birds at our bedroom window.  At first there was excite but I kept informing the girls that once they get big enough, they would leave the nest.  They knew this!  I swear they knew this!

After dinner last evening they went up to check on the birds (as they do very often in one day) and there were only two birds in the nest, meaning that two birds had flew the coop.

Two little baby birds made their way into the world yesterday evening.  You would think that the girls would sit there and see if the other two would fly away, but that didn’t happen.  Instead, K. got some left over dinner bisquits and went outside to try and call for the birds.  (Me with almost tears in my eyes)

Eventually, waiting for baby birds to come and eat some dinner bisquits out of you hand gets tiring so ya sit down and wait (and wait, and wait).  Oh, and she is doing her little “bird call” while she is holding bisquits in each hand (one for each bird that flew away of course).

She sat there until it was time to go in and get bathed.  Whistling her little “bird call” the whole time (breaking my heart as well).  Then this morning, L. and I went to check on the birds and there is only one left.  Trying with all his might to fly out into the world with his little birdie siblings.

    Oh, I’m so sorry about K and the little birdies.. that one baby bird looks almost as big as momma at this point, so so sweet! Maybe this is a good time to explain that one day, they will leave the nest too? 😉 Good luck with that!

    And! Love the new blog home. Looks great! 🙂

    Oh my gosh, that is the sweetest story…is that how we’re gonna feel when our little ones fly the coop?

    It’s funny how K. is the oldest and she had a little bit more of a hard time with this than L. (my 3 year old did).
    ~Lisa~ Tried that once. They both tell me how I can come live with them when they do leave our home. And yes, it was time for me to leave Blogger. It also got to the point where it wouldn’t let me log-in for some odd reason. ugh!

    ~Tara~ Yes, I think that’s exactly how we are going to feel when they leave our “nest”.

    Tell K to keep an eye out in the yard. We have robins nesting in our yard every year, and just after the babies leave the nest, we see them back again for the rest of the summer, hunting for bugs and worms in the garden. They may not come back to the nest, but hopefully they’ll hang around!

    Thank you oobinsnaffa! She was outside earlier playing and we did see one of the baby birds. It was flying around in our backyard. She was really thrilled to see the baby robin.

    Tell the girls to keep an eye out for the mom, as wherever she is, odds are, the babies will be nearby. The mother (or father, or maybe it’s both) will continue to feed the babies on the ground, while also teaching them to find food themselves, for a couple of weeks. They are considered “fledgelings” at this stage.

    Thanks Renna! We have seen a few babies following the mama around. It’s cute because she’ll chirp and then the babes will chirp as sorda saying “Here I am Mom”. And yes, we have seen them being fed worms by the mama.
