Stormy Weather

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

what a lovely view, Annie - wish I'd thought to do that for you the other day. Hope you're feeling stronger every day and getting plenty of rest. xx

Are you counting the days to when you can be up and about a bit more?
I hope that those white babies survive.

Dear Annie ~ I enjoy hearing about your little babies, and am sad to hear you lose some. Those poor little mommies.

The view of your garden from your bedroom is lovely.

Do be careful in your garden hopping. Patience and rest and pretty soon you'll be back out there working in them.

Love and hugs ~ FlowerLady

Hmmm, now I'm confused about your sweet little birds. I thought they were inside, but now I'm thinking they're outside? Am I nuts? Sounds like you're starting to get around a little better -- Yay!

The "circle of life" is not always fun, is it? But what a gorgeous view you have there! That should make you recover quickly.

Sad stories about the baby birds. I gave up on ducks cause every time they were sitting on eggs we would have an electrical storm that would end the whole process. Don't know why but couldn't bear it in the end...and their habit of pooing on the back door step!
