Ready to Fly
Athough you can't see all five babies, they are getting ready to fly; today I saw them preening their feathers and as you can see, although very small, they are definitely ready. I've moved my chair to right below the nest so if they fall they won't land on the porch and might survive. I/we haven't watched them this long to watch them perish. I know survival rates aren't very high but still I don't want to be the cause. Once they are gone for good, my wreath is coming down for a thorough inspection, possible cleaning or possibly a garage can destination. I've loved watching them but next time I'd just assume the momma chooses a tree but I do think it was a blessing to get to watch them hatch, grow and develop.
May you soar with the eagles today!
I am a daughter of the King, saved by grace for 37 yrs. I am married to my best friend and beloved for 38 years. I was born and lived most of my life in Northern Calif. until moving to Colorado. We homeschooled our girls for years and I love encouraging my daughters and others in their homeschooling. Hubby and I are blessed to have two incredible daughters and sons-in-law and 11 grandkids. I love spending time with my family & our dog Hunter, friends, plus quilting whenever I can.
