A Safe Place to Raise the Kids

Good morning,

Our mama bird has eggs in her nest now over the lion above the window on our home.  :) 

About all we can see of her is her tail right now, but soon we should see little babies peeking over the side and she'll be busy bringing them food.

We'll be glad when her babies have left the nest so we can block the area from being a bird home again.  We are sure the lion isn't happy about having the moisture behind his head, but he is doing a great job of keeping the bird family safe.

So cute!

All the best,
Lois

That bird knew right where to build to be protected from predators and the elements! Is it a Robin? If you told us, I've forgotten.

Hi Everyone,

No, we can't hear the babies yet. :) We are watching.

No, River, it only snows every other day here at this time of the year. ;)

Thanks, everyone, for stopping by and for your kind comments.

All the best,
Lois
