twins times two!

June 22, 2012

In a post a few weeks ago I mentioned that a bird of unknown species had assembled a nest on my porch light fixture…the mystery is solved: four wee Mockingbirds emerged earlier this week!



trio – one’s tucked on the other side:

    Quadruplets! How wonderful! And how lucky you are.

      I thought so, too…first I saw two, then another, and then the last little guy😉

    They are so cute! I have never seen baby mockingbirds before. How fun to watch them grow!

      Me either, Karen…I’m enjoying the view, will be sad to see them go but thrilled when they make it that far!

      I was pretty thrilled to learn which birds had built it, now I can’t wait to see them grow, soon as I get back, I’ll check on em again
      thanks, Eva, you’re right, more than one song by now:)

      I look at the nest in amazement, two birds flew back and forth in a matter of days building this sturdy nest and now their home is full! always appreciate your visits and comments, Geoffrey

    Their Mama chose a good porch to nest her babies in. It’s a win-win situation – Mama doesn’t need to worry about the safety of her wee ones, while you get to watch, and wonder, and write about what you see – just outside your ‘window’ – can’t wait to hear it!!

    • June 23, 2012 1:22 pm

      She did, Claire! I’m trying not to disturb them, but they’re just so gosh-darn cute!

    I’m just a guy with a limerick reply…

    Your light is a place for a birds nest,
    A spot where the chicks really do rest;
    Their eyes are still closed,
    I love how they’re posed,
    It looks like their mother did her best.
