Wordless Wednesday ~ Baby Birds

Unfortunately, I have to explain this photo. The neighbor boy was over and playing with my son. They were just pounding around with baseball bats and he started pulling away at the bark on our stump because he heard something. I guess my son tried to stop him, but the neighbor boy is several years older. So, this is what was inside.

I guess the mama was dive bombing the neighbor boy and clocked him on the cheek a couple times. I went out a couple different times to try and cover up the now huge hole that used to be the size of a bird hole. The afternoon I was finally able to get something up, the mama came and flew around in my ponytail! It was sooooo freaky!! LOL

I covered it up because I found a baby on the ground. I knew that the cats and other critters could get into it also. I haven't checked on my cardboard cover-up today, so I will have to make sure it's still there. Want those babies protected!

That photo is awesome. I'd be freaked too if a momma bird was flying around in my ponytail.

Nice to see you over at Creative and Curious Kids!

Good for you covering them up, b/c otherwise they wouldn't stand a chance against other critters especially cats. Poor mama birdy. all well boys will be boys. LOL
