Announcement!

The babies are here! And they are quadruplets (or so I think)! For the past 2-3 days S and I have been super excited about the new additions to our patio family. The pair of birds who had made a nest in our patio gave birth to a bunch of little birds! (I mean, they laid eggs and they hatched.) It is just so much fun observing their feeding cycle. The little babies always seem to be hungry! They sit with their heads popped a little out, and the moment they sense their parents nearby they will open their mouths/beaks and crane their necks for food!!

The other day, after their feeding, the babies were snugly tucked in, and the parents sat at the edge of the nest, keeping them warm. It was such a pleasing sight! And it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside seeing the happy family all cuddled together. It also made me incredibly sad at the same time thinking that there are so many people out their who are not blessed with a happy family. And how having a strong supporting family makes life so much better. And yet, in spite of having dysfunctional families, people do fight to be happy and content and make peace with the situation. And many times grow up to be these amazing role models. Howmuchever I complain that humans are capable of cruelty beyond limits and even though sometimes I wish I belonged to a different species, there are times when I am just so easily inspired by the tenacity of human spirit. The ability to bounce back, to make best of the situation and to live life happily. I context switch a lot like this, these days. (Imagine going from baby bird birth to my wish to belong to a different species!).

Anyway, main intent of this post was to share some baby bird shots I managed to take. I think I should have done just that and saved your time πŸ˜‰

Where is my food?!!

Be patient…otherwise you ain’t getting it!!

Here you go!
