Empty nest
One by one the kids left the nest. One didn't make it though. The little guy/gall flew across the yard to the street and sort of stood there for a moment but luckily it made a run for the yard of our neighbour’s house. I was worried that some car would go by and make road pizza. So thinking it was safe and sound me and my mother went to the mall and took care of a few things. We came back home and took out our things that we bought and put them away and decided to look out the door to see for any babies. Unfortunately we saw one as road pizza close to our yard. I'm guessing that was the same bird that we saw earlier and unfortunately made the wrong choice. Poor little guy/gall.

Mama bird went out to look for lunch in the park so I got an even better photo opp today. I wonder where is papa bird though?

As you can see the babies eyes are just starting to open. I hope though that I could possibly get even better pics of the mama and babies feeding but I don't want to go to far because of the possibility of spooking them too much.

I also remembered that I had a bunch of grapes that have been in the fridge for a while. I took them out and placed them on the porch near the railing. I think mama bird really appreciated them. It was kind of funny when she and the grapes she was pulling at fell of the ledge. Yep I guess she really enjoyed them. I only hope they’re a little more considerate when her and her family start to attack our fruit tree and grape vine when the season is right.

Well I managed to get some pics of the robins. Didn't get too close since those birds are kind of skittish. Luckily they're close enough for me to take pics. Would like to take some better ones if the opportunity arises. I think they're about 4 to 5 days old and I think there's about 2 or 3 of them.

Made another nest for my doves today. Its for my little sweetie who is a bit crippled on one leg. She tries to nest with the others, only they give her a hard time about it. So now she has her very own nest in a private part of the outdoor cage. I only hope the others don't take too much notice and let her be. None the less she was quite pleased with it, even excepted a fake egg and some bits of straw and twigs. I could just see her happy face and a sparkle in her eye.

Looks like we got some new neighbors. You know the birds that I guess pooped a smile on Pretty boys rock? Well they made a nest in the tree near the porch a few weeks ago, lade a few eggs and yesterday I noised two cute yellow and big mouths so far in the nest. Yep their robins. I'll try to take a few pics when of course no one is around. Its too distracting otherwise.

Well I failed again. What else is new. What I failed at only my cousin knows.
Sigh.. i really could use a cat. Still not ready for it yet. Still getting ready for a new buddy though.
Maybe by the time I'm ready hopefully this crazy pet food recall will be done with and resolved.
