Here's mama bird covering her babies. I have to say, she picked a great spot. It was relatively high up the tree. I had to use a stool to get better pics. And if you are unfamiliar with Texas Ebony, they are very thorny trees, so the only one bothering her was me. ;) I used the super-zoom lens as much as possible. When she was out getting food, I got to snap some pics of the babies.
They're so little here! You can barely see the tops of their heads!
It's amazing how fast they grow! I thought humans were fast... I can't imagine being a mama bird and having to let go so soon! I'm glad I at least have 17 more years with my baby... hoping for more! :(
A little while after I took this last picture, the babies flew away! Sniff... bye babies! Be safe! :)
