    Don’t little birds always look like they just need a nap when their mouths are closed?

    • Eliza Waters says:

      All they do is eat voraciously and snooze in the minutes between parent visits. And boy, are those parents busy! 🙂 Cheep, cheep! they call all day long! Whew!

    So precious! I wish I could witness. I miss my Robins – damn neighborhood cat ):

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Oh, ouch, it is so hard to lose these precious ones to predators, domestic or otherwise. Now that my cats stay inside, I feel the birds are much safer, but I still have to watch out for the neighbors cats. I’m hoping these little guys make it to adulthood!

    peeps to you Eliza-adorable!

    What a charming picture, Eliza. I’m finding half-eggshells all over the yard, but I’ve seen no baby birds. We have a pair of mourning doves tending a nest high up in the eaves of the house. I’ve left a big tub of water nearby for the parents.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Good for you! I can imagine providing water for the birds out there would make a huge difference and attract many takers.
      The little cheeps are still on the nest making a racket as I write. Can’t be long before they fly. 🙂

      • mk says:

        I haven’t heard a single cheep. That would be so sweet!
        You’re right about providing water in this weather – I haven’t actually seen either mourning dove drinking at the water gift; just a few sparrows (I think). Most people have the sense not to water lawns during the day, so there’s very little “free” water throughout the day. Although, I’m sure they know lots more than I about where to find it.
