This afternoon, I was lucky enough to see some baby birds leaving the nest for the first time. It was quite the sight...there were three babies (that I could find) hopping around our yard...with the parents chirping and flying overhead. It was so amusing to the see the babies learning to use their wings. They were teeny tiny - at the most a couple inches in size - and could actually move quite quickly - I was thrilled to get a decent picture of each of one. Within just a few minutes they were all flying and off on a new adventure!
