For two wonderful months I watched an exciting story unfold, and it all began when a mother Starling chose a peculiar nesting place in my backyard. Our old barbeque pit became a nursery for two wide-eyed baby birds. Little did they know I was waiting for opportunities to peek into their lives.
Once a week I listened closely for tiny cries, which alerted me when their mother left for a food run. Thankfully, I captured each moment of their beginning and was able to share it with you in the video above. (Push the play button to view the video. It has music, so turn up your volume to listen.)
I will miss watching them grow and hope to see them flying around my neighborhood in the days to come. This springtime tale is one I’ll never forget.
