Extra Blessings!

Just in time for Mother's Day. We had a nest in a dead plant on our patio. So we have kept the plant undisturbed til the babies hatched and leave the nest. Well, yesterday, Mother's Day, they hatched, so Mama bird had 3 extra special blessings on Mother's Day! Now I'm just praying our dear border collie, Riley, does not try to get to them!

I had to stand up over the plant (which is about 6-1/2 feet tall) and just aim my camera through the branches, hoping I got a good shot.

Thank you for visiting!

What a fantastic shot. Hope they are safe where they are, but you are watching. What a wonderful Mother's Day present.

@LauraS: Thank you. So far they are still alive and the mama still feeding them. Trying to give her/them their space so she won't abandon them.
