I love spring! It is the season that everything is new again. The snow melts and we look forward to warmer days.
Every year we have birds nesting around our house. The last couple of years we have been the hosts to a few families of chickadees and this year we are hosting 2 families of robins.
I love having the birds around. We have many feeders in various places. Our kitten runs from window to window to observe their every move.
We have 2 large mulberry trees on opposite sides of our front yard. There are nests in both of them. We have noticed that the mother is leaving the next quite frequently so we figured that the eggs must have hatched. I know from other years, that the babies do not stay in the nest for very long, so I had to get out there and see if I could get a photo or two.
Our mulberries are about 9 years old, so they are very thick with branches. It was very hard to get my camera close enough to take a good photo. There are 3 babies in this nest and 3 in the other one.
As you can imagine, the mom & dad were not happy about me standing on a ladder with my camera shoved into the tree! They were sitting on the rooftop next to our house. I was a little nervous, but they didn't dive at me.
