They Flew the Coop

...or at least the nest. I was sorry to see upon my return from Dallas that the baby birds that had been living in my garage were gone. I had checked on them shortly before my departure. All five babies were crammed in the nest - and I mean crammed - and looked to be almost fully feathered. So, it wasn't unexpected but I do miss their presence. It's a nice feeling to know that we sheltered these babies and they are now out in the wild. I like to think that Rachel Carson would have been proud of us.
