Come Fly With Me

Last week Hallie & Izzy came running in the house shouting "Come quick!" They had discovered baby birds in the birdhouse outside. I headed out with the camera to try and get a few pics but try as might they wouldn't peek their heads out for me.
Izzy kept begging "Don't blind them" (with the camera flash) and all I could think of was the Andy Griffith episode where Opie had to raise the baby bird!
The baby birds were chirping away and the mother bird was flying over protectively so we left them in peace. They stayed a few more days and then flew away.
I couldn't manage to get any good pics of the birds my camera (really me) just couldn't get close enough but I did take a lovely close up pic of the tree. Ha!
