Look what surprised me when I went out to check on the babies this morning.

Sitting on a limb of the Rosemary brush was this sweet little mockingbird,  out of the nest, to my surprise. Isn't it cute?  They do grow fast!
When I tried to look over at the others it jumped to another limb.  I sure hope it gets back in the nest.

Mama keeps a close watch on the light wire above.

 If you look to the top left of the Rosemary bush, you'll see Mama bird watching closer.  The babies are down deeper into the bush.

Daddy and mama sits on the light wire at all times except to fly off and get food, usually one at a time.
Milo lays under the car just to get out of the sun.  Yesterday as he walked across the yard mama flew down and pecked him.
Hubby and I sit in the swing to watch them flying back and forward to feed their young.

They are growing up too fast like our children do.  Kind of sad but necessary.

Have a Blessed Day!


  1. Oh how cute! Thanks for sharing with us. And you're right, our children do grow up too quickly. Sometimes I wish there was a pause button :)

    Have a great day!

    Love and hugs!

  2. Oh this is just so exciting, Sylvia. Keep it up, sure am enjoying this!

  3. I love these pictures. Baby birds are so much fun to watch! Keep miss kitty away!!! I have a dove nest in my front yard that I am watching. Although we already have too many doves in our bird feeder as it is, it will be fun to watch their progress when they emerge from the nest.
    Thanks for sharing these with us!!! What a privilege to witness these "nature" events!!!

  4. Precious! It's so hard to get pictures of small critters. You did a great job!
