So we discovered on May 12th that Rocky (what we named our tree when we planted it years ago) had a bird's nest with 4 blue robin eggs. Ashton was excited. She kept wanting to check it as she wanted to see the birds hatch.
However, most of the time the Mama bird was keeping her eggs warm and protected. We did our best never to come near her to startle her.
On May 27th the babies hatched. The looked so small and weak. Their eyes weren't even open.
Come today, the 31st only 4 days later and look how much the babies have grown! Wow! We've named the four babies Itty, Bitty, Teeny, and Weeny. Ashton just loves "her" babies. She wants so much to cuddle them or pet them, but she only gets to see them when the Mama is out getting food.
I don't know how much longer they'll stay put, but it's been so amazing to have them there!
