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.
