Now why he actually posed for the pictures with no caveats as to their possible publication in this blog is beyond me. It’s been nearly two years since I started this venture and he might have noticed that just about everything is fair game. Then again, I’ve been with this man for more than 16 years, and you’d think that I might have noticed that he doesn’t always notice. Anything. But that’s another blog post for another day.
Meanwhile, I have new photos to share! The baby birds hatched a couple of days ago! When we first peeked into the nest, it was amazing to see lots of little semi-translucent bodies, wings and skulls that were scarcely recognizable as birds. Now they have fuzzy heads and the clear beginnings of feathers on those teensy bodies. It’s a remarkable thing to see.
|Day One: Look at those limp bodies, and that one open yaw!|
|New definition of 'piling on'. Such bug eyes!|
|Feed me! Feed me! Feed me!|
|See the mama bird at far left? She's going in with food!|
|Look at this dude! Talk about a bad hair day! His fuzziness reminds me of the famous Albert Einstein photo!|
Now when I post a photo of a deck sighting of spindly legs, and open mouth waiting to be fed*, I may have to clarify: is it a bird—or is it CoTU?
*One of CoTU’s favorite questions, asked frequently throughout the day is “Is it time for me to be fed yet?”
