Not Much Longer

Seeing as it was a sunny, warm spring day, Mama Bird took the opportunity to take a break.  Hopefully she got a meal and water in, too.  We actually put a bird feeder not far from our front steps and placed bird seed in it, you know, so she won't have to be gone too long.  She is very dedicated and never is gone long, at least from what we see.
Being the ever curious humans that we are, my taller chick, Ali, and her even taller brother peeked in to see if any activity was going on in the nest while Mama Bird was out.  No, not a thing.  Which is good.  Hoping the weather continues to warm up--we just had quite a little snowstorm on Tuesday but all seems well.
Should be fun to hear the little chirps when those babies get here.

More Mama Bird.....

 We haven't given her a name--we just call her "Mama Bird".  We aren't even sure what type of bird she is.  She dutifully spends most of her days and surely all of her nights keeping her four dusty green eggs safe and warm.  She doesn't seem too concerned by our presence when we are in our front yard--just this past Saturday my husband trimmed the lawn edges and I followed with the lawn mower and she steadfastly remained in her abode.
It has been a bit of a change to our daily routine--we don't use the front door these days.  We come and go through the garage and even placed a sign out front asking that visitors do the same.  How long till the eggs hatch remains to be seen but one thing is for sure--our family is eager to see what comes next for Mama Bird and her brood.
