August 3, 2009 [b]: My own bird-story

Hh, it is a wink to the Condor!
Yesterday i've cutted al the trees and bushes in my garden.
When i was done i was proud about it and told my GF (wife ) to look at it! She noticed i just sliced next to a bird sitting on his nest!
She (the bird ) must have had the worst fear ever! ( Electrical cutter! )
So she was sitting on some eggs.... I lifted up Tess and she told me she could count three of them! Yesterday evening rain came falling down real hard.
So i went into the garden and build some roof to protect it when i saw this little bird! This morning all three eggs wer gone and there wer 3 small birds! By the way, its a blackbird!
I just put some bread close by her nest and hope that the young ones wil help me thrue life too and be my friend and come over some time...
( and dont birds lay eggs in May? ) I will not be able to follow them up like i did with my daughter!

About a month ago I was doing the same thing and came across these mockingbird chicks. I came across them because their mother (father?) tried to enter my skull by flying in through my eyeball!! Scared the living shit outta me. The greenery is VERY thick, this is the best pic I could get while being beaten about the head and face w/close air support by two mocking birds...the kids (3 actually, only 2 in this pic) were thoroughly unimpressed.

That is kind of you, York. Instead of putting bread out, I've heard it is good to dig up some soil or compost that is full of worms and leave the loose soil near the bird's nest, so they can catch the worms easily to feed their chicks.

Birdies like the Atkins diet, I hear.



York  Tuesday Aug 4 01:20 AM

Oh , well thanks. I ll try and do that!



SPUCK  Tuesday Aug 4 05:50 AM

Nice pics York!



York  Tuesday Aug 4 02:19 PM

Thanks, i just found a baby-bird dead on the ground. There were three, so i think its something naturel to push one out!
And sorry guys, i couldnt take any pics of it!



Gravdigr  Tuesday Aug 4 04:33 PM

Did you at least bread it and fry it? No, sense in it going to waste.



York  Wednesday Aug 5 01:13 AM

No , cooking it , frying it made it dissapear..... to small and no meat a all! :p



York  Saturday Aug 15 07:21 AM

After a week Belgian coast i wondered how they wer doing....
Real bad! No mom in sight so i took a look....
To dead birds totally flat... Like mom sat on them tooo long! Creepy, threw it out before Tess came and take a look.... I know its a part of life but.... This topic can be closed on a real sad note...

Awwww York, sorry to hear that.
Like you say, it's nature. But I get why your daughter doesn't need to know all that just yet.

When I was a kid, my friend's gerbil had babies. She ate one and squished the rest of them to death. I understood, but my friend's younger brother had about a week of nightmares afterwards.

Great pics though - and Gravdigr.
