Petey the Wonder Dog and me didn't take any pictures today. We did go out into the wilderness and roamed around in the rain. Here are some pictures of a bird's nest, the mama bird and four baby birds. I watched them from being eggs until they left the nest. There were four baby birds and they were named Shadrack, Meshack, Abednego and Ernie.

This is the nest  when I first noticed it in a bush beside the front porch.

A few days later it had four little blue eggs in it.
A little later it had four little baby birds.
                                 This is later after they have grown a little. The nest is getting crowded.

This is the mother bird on the nest. She is kinda hard to see, but if you look closely you can see her eye.
This is Ernie and Meshack on the day they flew away. The other two had already flown the day before.
Meshack was the last to take flight. He looks like he has an attitude.
"What!! leave the nest. Are you crazy? This is home  and besides, I have lots of room now."
But, he flew away not long after I took this picture.
