We're Expecting!!

Twins...and I could not be more excited!!

The hubs found the nest and he was overjoyed to share it with me.
We peaked in, and she slowly slid off the nest,
to show us her soon to be babies!!


She flew off for a few seconds and I was able
to capture this image.

She returned quickly!!

So we're having babies and I am beyond thrilled!!
Stay tuned!!

Please stop by and view all the amazing birds from around the world.

  6. Congrats Debbie. But don't get too thrilled, once they hatch and could fly they don't even bother coming back to say hello or just thank you for taking care of them and watching them. I went through this last year and once they left they left for good. I was so sad when they left. LOL. I mean I really was. I took pictures daily, when the mom left I would place some food for her and water and one day a storm came through, she left and my husband and I took down the hanging flower pot (where she had made her nest) so that the babies would not get wet and all for nothing. She did not even remember all we did for her and her babies. But that is nature for you.
    Your photos are gorgeous. Hope you continue taking pictures of them and share with us.

  14. That is a really good shot. I know where we have doves getting ready to hatch eggs but they are too high in the trees for me to get a good shot.
    I really like seeing these.
