Baby Birds


So sad!!! The baby birds hatched and they have already died!! I was trying to take some pics of them but soon realized that they were dead. It sounds so silly but I couldn't help but wonder about that mommy bird and what she thinks or how she feels. I don't know anything about birds but I do know how I felt after losing a baby and it was really hard so as silly as it sounds, I hope mommy bird is ok!! I guess I also feel a little sad about it because we have been watching mommy bird for so long now and were waiting and waiting for these little birds to hatch. As far as I can tell there were only 2 babies. I did get to see their fuzzy little heads moving around in the nest before they died.

Mitch and I found this little egg shell under a tree in our yard!

Oh that is so sad! We had baby birds last year that I loved. This year we have a different mama bird sitting on her eggs. It's funny how attached you can get to the baby birds.
