Target Birds Went on Honeymoon

Today, we are having some fun with our salt and pepper birds from Target. Susan's birds at http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ started all these wild adventure on Blogland. Please visit her to find out where all the birds are this Wednesday.
It is also Outdoor Wednesday hosted by another Susan of http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/. Please visit Susan also to see all the wonderful outdoor posts of everyone.
All the Target birds in Blogland are all going on a holiday and I cannot allow mine to be couped up indoors, so I released them. And wouldn't you know it? They went on a honeymoon and guess what happened! They had babies, right inside my hanging planter. Now, I cannot water my plant because I do not want to drown the eggs.
They are just enjoying themselves!

See the eggs?
Here is a better view.
They are too deep inside the nest and it's dark so I could not count the eggs but there must be at least 4 of them that I can see.
It seems like a lot of birds are just building nests everywhere. Here is another one.

And I even found a nest on one of our shelves in the garage.
Thanks to both of you, Susans for these 2 exciting events.

Cute post! Every year I have a bird or two that likes to build a nest in the wreath I have hanging on our front door. I don't know who scares whom worse...my opening the door and scaring the birds or the birds taking flight and scaring me! LOL

Blessings to you from Kansas,
Valerie

Terrie's Lil' Piece of Serenity said...

Christine, I think this has to be my favorite birdie story. Maybe it's because of the live flowers. I am not sure. But, I love it. And those little eggs are just adorable. Hugs, Terrie

Oh Christine, that is so sweet. The same thing happened to me a couple of years ago. I was able to watch them hatch & then eventually fly away.
