The nest was built on the electrical meter by the back door and we have been monitoring the babies progress each time we go in and out of the house. The babies started to leave the nest yesterday. One by one, they each took that leap of faith and opened their wings to clumsily fly out on their own for the first time. By the day's end, all but one had left. While heading out to water the garden early this morning, I noticed the last little baby by the back step...He had bravely on his own taken that leap. A gentle reminder of where Troy and I are at ..... Watching our last baby bird leave the nest!
