A bird nest

Standard

I’ve been trying to extract pictures out of my phone camera to the computer so I can upload new posts to this blog.  Finally, I could do it.  Otherwise, I can only get the images from the additional memory card in the phone.  This afternoon, I could access the phone storage.  Hooray!

So on with my post for today …

Last week, as I was looking out of the kitchen window, I noticed a small brown bird was hiding within a pot of orchids that my mom had planted years ago.

I kept watching.  Then, I got thinking.  There is a reason why this bird is in that pot for a long time.

After the bird left, I went out to take a look.  The pot is hung rather high and I couldn’t look inside.  So, I got my phone camera and took a picture.  True enough, there are two little eggs lying inside a nest!

Wow … this is a first for me.  Usually, when I found a nest around the house, they have been abandoned.  No eggs …

Anyway, what I wanted to say is although this home is smack in the city centre, it’s still really close to nature.  For instance, when we first arrived in January, I noticed a family of wild birds are living among the bushes of lemongrass and another plant, which the leaves are used for women’s confinement. Two adult birds with their 4 hatchlings.  The little ones are black all over.  This reminds me of the ugly duckling that grew into a swan story 🙂  Now, the hatchlings have grown to young birds like their parents.

Back to the two eggs in the nest.  I can’t wait to see the eggs hatch.  Once they hatch, I hope the mother bird won’t mind if I take a picture of the hatchlings.
