and then they flew away

after what seemed like such a short time in the nest
we watched our three little birds hop around in grass up to their beaks
testing new wings, trying to reach mama as she squawked at them from fence posts
testing his wings
and then, just like that, they were gone.


  1. Wonderful pictures and I'm sure it was fun for the kids to watch these little birds. So educational. They don't stay in the next long after hatching, do they?

  2. love that last picture of the bird with the crazy baby wispy feathers.

  3. Neat pictures!... know you enjoyed watching the little ones 'fly the coop'. This being our first summer in Kansas City, we have enjoyed an entirely different crowd of birds around our feeders ....we're ready however for the juncos (snowbirds) to arrive bringing some cooler winter weather.
