We have new life on the Coy property, symbolic, since we are preparing for a new life within our family too.
The little brown bird that has taken home in Landon's gourd he painted, drilled, and strung up last fall, has had babies!
There are several of them in there. This little brown bird mama inspires me with her constant feeding of the little chicks.
They have their mouths open each time I look at them, at least three times a day, and mama flies back and forth bringing them crickets, small worms, and flies. Since we are only a couple feet away from their nest, we can see it all up close.
It's nothing like we've ever seen. I suppose they will try to fly soon. I will be as nervous as that mama bird when they take flight.
