One More to Go!

Since we returned from vacation, I have been regularly checking on our bird's nest to check the status of our eggs. Yesterday at lunch time when I checked, there were no baby birds, but I did notice that one of the eggs was moving a bit. Sure enough, shortly before dinner, I discovered a brand new baby bird in the nest. The other three eggs had not hatched yet. I took some picture and some video (posted above). So cute! This morning I discovered two more baby birds. I only got a couple pictures and a very small snippet of video before the momma bird squawked her warning, and I hightailed it out of there! The video is a little blurry since the nest is a bit above my head, and I can't really see what I'm doing very well. You can definitely see the birds though. There's one more egg left to hatch, and hopefully that'll happen today. I got a picture of the momma bird today, but she doesn't stay still for long enough to get a good picture. I wasn't sure she was a sparrow (definitely not a finch) until today. When she saw me close to her nest, she brought her head down and puffed out her chest a bit. It looked just like the pictures of a sparrow we found in the books we got from the library. What a blessing to get to see this miracle! I love it! Love you all, and thank you to God Almighty who has for now blessed us with these.
