flying the nest

we had baby birds in our workroom, windows and door open I thought last week they weren't going to make it.


mama had lost one and then I snuck in and the three little ones didn't peep and one was breathing really heavy.. but I was too chicken to check again until sean said yesterday he'd seen mama bird going in and out again... she'd been sneaky I think


this morning I got up the nerve and peeped in (after sean had said he'd seen a little baby bird peeping out at him when he checked). We found mama and daddy on the edge of the nest (I didn't get photographs of them). I grabbed my camera and got a shot of the baby birds huddled deep in the nest but wanted to get closer. By the time I swapped lenses (for a macro) mama and daddy were teaching the babies to fly away... sean came in with me a half hour later and they were on the window sill and then they were gone


aren't they amazing
