Mockingbird Manor

Last week Nathan noticed a bird carrying twigs around the yard and came in from the back yard to let everyone know that there was a bird building a nest somewhere!! So by Friday of last week I was watering plants and checking to see how they were doing and noticed a nest in the crepe myrtle tree. I was surprised, mainly because this tree is only 5 feet tall and right next to the house!! As the days progressed eggs have been appearing, first just one, than two and today we are up to 3 eggs. Nathan has enjoyed going out there and keeping watch. I am trying to limit the kids time out back so that the little birds stand a chance at surviving!! Keep posted for further updates...
