Look closely! There are 3 new babies! They hatched late yesterday morning. Mom didn't appreciate me getting this close to take their picture, lol. We shut the cat up last night so she wouldn't get them but this morning they are gone. I looked them up on the internet and found out that the babies stay in the egg 2 weeks longer than the other birds who are born naked. Thus, they are able to run around very soon after hatching. So, I am encouraged and sincerely hope these 3 are zooming around in the grass with their parents somewhere. I didn't see the parents either this morning. I am continually amazed at Mother Nature and how if left alone, takes care of her young. Good luck little birds!
