Bird Watching

Apparently, our front porch is not the only place
the birds are building nests in our yard this spring.


Over the past week or two, we have found three more bird nests in our backyard. 
Two were made by robins and one by a pair of cardinals. 


I was unable to photograph the cardinal nest due to its location in the holly bush,
but I did get a few photographs of the robins on their nests. 
We are enjoying this chance to watch these birds care for their eggs,
and look forward to the baby birds hatching.


...continuing my gratitude listing...

474.  birds building nests in our backyard

475.  watching birds care for their eggs

476.  observing God's creation

477.  pleasant standardized testing experience for the three older children

478.  picking out flowers and library books with my youngest son

479.  hearing the children sing in the spring choir concert last week


480.  getting used and even new books at great prices at an annual used book sale

481.  planting annuals amongst the perennial flower beds

482.  my favorite perennials (in our yard) in bloom


483.  deep cleaning a room

484.  fresh linens on beds

485.  spending an afternoon with my mom

486.  steaks made on the grill by my husband

487.  hearing The Mom Song sung by Go Fish, and the children's choir performing to the music on Mother's Day.  It is a delightful song, and if you have never heard it before, it is worth the three minutes.



488.  a Sunday afternoon walk to a light house with my family

489.  the beautiful water view from the cliff the light house sits on

490.  strangers clapping for our children being so brave to climb the winding stairs and ship ladder to the top of the light house

...and so it continues...

  2. Dorie,

    You did an excellent job of capturing the birds in their nest with the camera. You definitely have some great zooming skills. :)

    I've heard "The Mom" song by Go Fish, and I think it's a pretty cute, yet truthful song. :)
