I finally got up this morning at 6 AM. i was tired of laying in bed wide awake.
I wandered to the bathroom and did my usual peek out the window to see what was happening in the early morning in the backyard. I saw some movement in the area of the tomato plants. I blinked hard and looked, again. Was it my baby bird!!?? I ran to the kitchen door for a closer look. I couldn’t believe my blurry eyes! There underneath the tomato plants was my baby bird flapping his wings and standing right beside him was…… his mommy! I almost cheered out loud! (but did so in my head as not to awaken my husband) I watched for a few moments but couldn’t see the details that i wanted so I ran for my binoculars. By the time i got back the 2 had moved. “Wow!”, i thought, “she didn’t abandon him after all. She’s been right here all of the time.”
i went out a bit later to see my little guy but i couldn’t find him. I did see mommy bird fly away from the fence area to a hydro wire and where she guarded from afar as i wandered around looking for Bobby…. she was keeping an eye on him where ever he was.
I don’t know what’s next with this little family. I wish i had some really cool parallel to life. I can think of lots but they’re all pretty cliche-ish so i’ll leave them to you to figure out. I do want to say publicly that my husband was right. I didn’t have to worry about my baby bird……. hmmmmm….. makes me think…….
