It has been a very exciting week at our house! Three eggs were laid by a robin just outside our laundry room window and we have had the privilege to watch all three baby birds hatch!
Both of my daughters are so intrigued to watch each new day’s development. The nest is the first thing they check when they wake up each morning. My oldest daughter began creating documentary videos to capture every step.
We have watched each of the three baby birds hatch and be immediately attended to by their mother. She snuggles down into the nest to keep her babies safe and warm. She leaves to gather food, but stays close by to monitor the nest. She feeds each baby one at a time, and nudges them affectionately.
As my oldest so wisely observed, “It’s amazing how the mama bird just knows how to care for her babies!”
Yes, it certainly is. We “mama birds” are good like that!
