Three Babies!




So this is the front porch pillar that I have tried to 'cat proof' to protect the baby birds in their porch nest.  

I am sure the neighbors are wondering what type of new decorating sense I have adopted with this look.....

Just hope it will keep the cats away.  I think I'm going to add a bit more plexiglass, but have to go and get it cut to fit.  I had to break the pieces I already had hanging around in the garage.  This was no easy task and it splintered a LOT.

The babies are not chirping yet, but I really love watching them through the window that overlooks their little nest.  I have a bird's eye view....pun totally intended!!

Mommy Robin is bringing a steady supply of worms and other delicious bird treats to her ALWAYS hungry, wide mouthed babies.  

Watching how hard she is working to keep these little ones fed has given me a whole new appreciation for the convenience of breast feeding.....it was great especially in the wee hours of the morning when I was half asleep!!

I'm looking forward to watching the progress of these little feathered friends.  And I have a great deal of admiration for this very dutiful Mommy Robin. She is awesome!

Enjoy the day♥
