The Bird

A bird nested on our window sill this spring, and we've been watching her. She's taken up residence in a window box that normally holds some flowers. Several weeks ago, we noticed two little eggs. Since then, we've been waiting for an opportunity to get a snapshot of the eggs. Wouldn't you know, the bird is always sitting there minding her eggs so getting another look at the eggs was almost impossible. I opened the window shade about a week ago to check on her and I noticed a little chic sitting there too. The chic mostly hides underneath the mother bird's fluffy feathers so it's hard to see it clearly, and I'm not able to tell if there are one or two chics. The little birds are still gray and lanky with baby fuzz instead of feathers. We'll be watching as they get bigger and more bird like.
