Several times a day I would check to make sure the eggs were alright. Two weeks later after checking the nest, I found that all the eggs had hatched and the babies were nowhere in sight!
Lolly Bee stayed with me never making a sound.
they were back!!!
On the 2nd day the father showed up walking on the block wall calling for them to leave. She marched out of the nest with all the babies in a row behind her. The perfect photo and the camera would not come on!!nothing!!-the battery was dead! &;X;#@$%#@ and a few F's ! By the time I got back outside with the camera phone on and ready they were gone! All the waiting and time spent worried about them , they just up and leave! Just like that! Not even a look back! But I am so grateful that I did get a few shots of them in their nests. Hoping they will choose to come back next year and give me another chance.....
