Spring has been sprung

Beautiful blue eggs in our nest in the back courtyard

I’m very upset.

We discovered a small bird’s nest at the back of our place…

Then last week I saw a blackbird nesting in it.

Then she flew off as I cautiously approached it.

She flew right back after I walked off with my precious “first” shots. We enjoyed another few days of seeing mummy bird love her eggs from inside the house.

But the next two days, another bird must have stolen an egg! The mother blackbird is now gone, the nest has only had one egg for days and no mummy bird!

I wanted to see those eggs hatch… I wanted the mummy bird to have another chance at having her own.

I’m upset. (But this is nature… no?)
