day 203 - leaving the nest

Today, our three little baby birds left the nest for good. We could tell they were getting close, and almost missed seeing them before they were gone. The daddy bird was nudging them, trying to get them out of the nest.

We watched for awhile and no progress was happening, so we walked away for just a few minutes, and when we returned, they birds were gone! Oh no! We were so sad that we missed it, but then we looked out and spotted the bird family in a tree close to the house. The parents were flying/chasing the babies from tree to tree, and the babies were doing it...they were flying! We were so excited.

We will miss watching them every day and hope we get some more visitors soon!
