Just this weekend, while Beaboo and I were playing (yes I play with her too :) at the backyard, there was this little tangerine Maya bird (who looks a lot like the photo on the left) going back and forth in one of Lola Cora's hanging plants...
She was carrying branches of twigs, going back and forth our pocket garden.
This is what Lola's hanging plants look like from afar... the one on the right was where she was bringing pieces of twigs. We will post pictures of mommy bird as soon as she poses in front of our camera :)
So we got really curious and started peeking inside the plant...
And Lo and behold! It was a bird's nest! She was building a nest in our garden.
Beaboo and I got really excited. We have birds right in our backyard. Its nice knowing that little birdie thought our garden was safe enough for her to put her eggs in. It's the first time we have a nest with eggs on them! :)
The first time we took this shot, there were only three eggs, now as I write this,
the bird has a total of five eggs in her nest! :)
We got really excited seeing the eggs in the nest, and Beaboo goes:
"Mommy! this means, this birdie is my pet now!"
Hehe. yeah right sweetie. as long as the little birdies are still inside the eggs.
I'm sure mommy bird won't allow us to keep all her chicks. But it was a very nice experience for me and my little girl having a front seat as nature shows us how God takes care of everyone and finds shelter even for the littlest of his creations. :)
