Here is a 14 phase sequence of bird birthing from depositing eggs to the ultimate empty nest within the planter that momma bird conscripted, as seen up close and personal from our front patio.
Phase 1: Nest with eggs
Phase 2: Momma warming her eggs
Phase 3: The two birds in newborn mode
Phase 4: Babies growing up
Phase 5: Mama is vigilant from the roof top
Phase 7: It’s a brave new world out there … ready? I think I can, I think I can!
Phase 9: Welcome little buddy — you made it down!
Phase 10: It’s kind of scary out there when your wings don’t work yet …
Phase 11: Pep talk and bonding before flight school …
Phase 14: The nest is empty. Nature has been served.
