Unfortuatley stormy weather is not good for baby birds.
This little one abandoned her eggs first time around, and this is her second sitting. I have seen little babies under her though, so all is good here.
Do you see Cassey up in this red box. Canaries don't usually like being in a box, preferring an open nest, but her first lot of 3 babies, who where our first out to hatch this season, were abandoned in the last big storm we had a few weeks agao. Finally she has decided to try again, but in a more stable apartment.
This little nest below was sort of out of the way a bit, and as we couldn't keep a constant eye on it, babies were hatched and I'm sure there is a couple of big ones in there.
I'm very sad to report that this is the nest of the beautiful white canary, who had 4 little white babies. The storm the other night has seen the end to them, however, she still sits on them. Hoping but not confident about this nest.
On a brighter note, this is the view from my bed. A friend came yesterday and lifted up my terraline curtains - and the view was much brighter.
I have a visitors chair that is being put to good use, and my toe is slowly recovering. I am VERY careful on my once a day hop around the back yard not to fall face down in a flower pot . . . hmmmm
