Something has happened to the baby birds. I noticed I didn’t see the mother bird sitting in the nest or flying away as often. Then I didn’t see her for what felt like quite a while (now it has been unbearably hot and we are not going in and out very much).I didn’t want to disturb the baby birds but curiosity got the best of me. I dragged a chair out onto the porch to have a look and this is what I saw:
We don’t know what happened. We don't think that they already learned to fly and are on their way, but we can hope for the best. If something else happened (and it wasn't happy), maybe next year the birds will choose a better place for a nest.
