Special Treasure

One of the ladies from our church does not own a car.  She is over our "card ministry" and sends birthday cards to the members of our congregation. A week ago asked me to pick her up on my way to the office so she could work on cards. I parked my truck and we both got out. As I start to walk across the parking lot to the office I see her walking the opposite direction toward a little tree. It appeared she was looking at something. In a little bit she turns to walk toward me saying she saw some baby birds.

She was right. Smack dab in the middle of town at one of the busiest establishments in town (Chicken Express - a fast food restaurant).

It isn't even a very big tree. The nest was high enough I could barely see. I took this picture by holding the phone over the nest. I didn't know what type of birds these were at first until the parents began to squawk and fly close to ward anyone off. They are Scissor Tails.

Unlike their babies I had to use my zoom lens to take the parents picture in a tree close by.

Here they are a week later. I am amazed at the difference in a weeks time!

They have almost outgrown the nest! Do you notice some of the things that the nest was built with?

One is awake!

Snug as a bug in a rug!

Have a good one!
