On the Edge

No, not me, although I would say that I'm close!  LOL!!!  It's my second batch, brood, bunch, go round or whatever they're called.  Can you see in this photo, how the nest is separating from the board (just like last time!!!) and sliding off the damn darn light box?

Being a concerned citizen, I did my best to brace their fall, if in fact that happens.  So, I went into the garage got a cardboard box and lined it with pine straw that I gathered on my hands and knees while trying to avoid getting stung by those damn darn yellow jackets.  Placing the cardboard box inside an old wooden crate that was hanging in my family room, I then positioned it on top of a ladder directly under the nest and hanging basket, which, by the way is full of crap bird droppings!


Watching the four little ones today, I noticed how they take turns, sit on the falling edge of the nest and flap their wings.  I'm hoping that they'll be flying soon...:)

Oh, one more thing.  Did I tell you that in performing creek clean-up, I saved about thirty five craw-fish?

You are so sweet! Like the fireman with the trampoline, you're there to catch those baby birds!

One more thing. Did I tell you crawfish are so good to eat? ;-)

Bless your heart! Nice to know they will be safe should they fall before they fly.

You have a heart of gold my dear. The things you do for mother nature when she is caught napping.
