Baby Birdies Fly the Coop on Outdoor Wednesday

It's been ages since I've had the fun of participating in Outdoor Wednesday! Thanks goes out to Susan for hosting from "A Southern Daydreamer"! Please be sure to drop by her place to see all the other lovely shares!

Today I want to tell you about the birdies that took up residence in one of my brand new hanging flower baskets that are on my second floor Veranda Porch. One day there was a nest, and before we knew it were the eggs...and it seemed like overnight there were these:
Today this little birdie took his first flight to here...
from there:
You really don't want to hear the horrid details of how he almost got killed today... I'm afraid I'd be too embarrassed to share...but thank the Good Lord, He intervened and he's alive and well and flying amidst the neighbors trees now with his siblings. I love to hear their little banters back and forth and see them practicing their flights.
I hope you will remember that even though he looks really scared and teency just one week ago (last picture above), today he had all his feathers and only a teency spiky hair on top of his head left from the baby fur that he had last week. Amazing what a week does in a baby birds life.

I hope you have a lovely Outdoor Wednesday!

You sound like me--I have gotten so caught up in the welfare of our baby birds before :) You were able to get some great pictures. Thanks for sharing them!

Oh CC the little birds are just so cute. We've had nests several times in the baskets on our patio. They are such fun to watch. I love to see the little ones as they learn to fly. Thanks for showing the "cloche" button. I think this will be such fun. I sure hope you're going to join us. Just fill up a jar and join the party. Great to see you out and about. Hugs, Marty

The baby bird pictures and story on your blog are delightful, Catherine, but hearing you tell the story in person yesterday afternoon was priceless! Perfect illustration of both the fragility and the resilience of life.
