A Successful Day

There was a lot of shrill chirping in our yard this morning as these little fluffballs popped, one by one, of the confinement of their shells.  What a joy it was to watch it all unfold.  The proud, and very protective Daddy led his first two away from the nest as Mama finished up with the other two.  Let me tell you, that Daddy bird has a mouth on him!  He gave me the 'what-for' the entire time I was outside even when I was nowhere near them.

I kept my distance, of course, but every ounce of me wanted to snuggle these little sweeties.  And as I heard the coyotes howling so nearby last night, I wished I could bring them all in and keep them safe.  Of course, they all made it through their first night, only to be led across the busy road to the pond on the other side.

Just look at these adorable little critters!

Before I get to the pictures, I have a quick question for my fellow bloggers.  I have tried to fix the problem, all of my settings are correct, but I am no longer receiving emails when one of you graciously leaves a comment here for me.  Any ideas?

  1. These are super cute. - Apparently there is a problem with Blogger and they are working on it. I don't get comments either in my e-mail and I don't like it. You actually have to go to your dashboard to publish your comments and reply.

  2. Andrea, what a wonderful thing to be able to watch this little bird family in action...wonderful photos! About the blogger thing...we are experiencing it. Currently, in order to get comments, after you publish EACH POST, you must go down to the bottom and check the box that says "notify me" or send follow-up comments to email. You will get comments but everyone will be noreply bloggers so if you don't have their email already in your contacts, you may want to go to their blog and reply to them. This has been going on since the end of May and Blogger is aware of it. It is very frustrating to ay the least! Oh well....

  4. I love Killdeer and their call. They are so protective because of how they make their wing look damaged. I always knew I was close to their nest when they did that. I would find the nest to make sure I would not step on it by mistake
