Welcome Little Ones
Last week I wrote about the coming of Spring and the Mockingbirds that made a nest in our topiary just outside of our front door. I still find it odd that they did this with all of the foot traffic in and out of our home, but I guess they felt safe enough.
We’ve been watching Momma coming in and out from the nest a lot from our window. One time we saw her come back with a worm so we investigated once we knew she left. When we walked outside you could hear tiny little peeps. Lo and behold, we had 3 new babies in the nest and I was able to get a quick photo before Momma came back.
Life is beautiful, precious and just amazes me at times. We were blessed to see the birds build the nest, lay their eggs and now welcome the new babies. I’m still in awe with these precious little ones.
Mockingbirds are the Florida State Bird and are here all year round. They are about ten inches in length, sing beautiful songs and are excellent mimics. We’re keeping everyone away from the nest area so the babies and parents don’t stress. We can see that Momma keeps an ever watchful eye over her babies as Mockingbirds are known for fiercely defending their nests.
Take the time to slow down and breathe in the beauty and new life all around you during this very special season.
Have a lovely weekend!
Thanks for stopping by. Share the Happy!!

So true Maria. I put my newly painted bird feeder out and just sit by my front window and watch the birds. Spring is in the air. Are you painting any of your feathered friends.

No, I’ve been so giddy painting my angels I haven’t tried any birds yet but they have definitely inspired me and I was thinking I need to paint some. I’m refilling my bird feeder in the backyard everyday. I love watching all the cardinals and blue jays, they’re so beautiful!
