George flew away ten days after he came out of the egg so the nest was empty again…but not for long! Mama bird didn’t waste time getting pregnant again (apparently, in birdie world, there’s no such thing as birth control hee hee) and laid two eggs again some couple of weeks back! Two days ago, the eggs hatched – all TWO eggs! I couldn’t help but blog about them.
As you can see, the nest is full of bird droppings. Pristine said she can’t imagine sleeping in a crib with all that dirt from her mother! Ewww. But in the bird world, it is ok – or should I say, the little birdies do not have a choice.
Closer look of the birdies:
I wonder what will become of them a few days from now? They will outgrow the nest and fight for space!
Yesterday, Pristine told me that Mama bird flew out to find food and when she came back, she fed them “mouth to mouth style”. It was an amazing sight to see, especially in the eyes of a child. Also as you can see in the photos, the little birds’ heads aren’t in the same direction, one facing right and the other left. Mama bird sat on them (I hope she’s not heavy!) and a few minutes later, the little birdies were facing the same direction!
Pristine was like, “Whoa! How did she do that without hands?”
