Backyard Babies

 Just look at what I found while cutting the lawn this past week.

I don't know how I saw him scramble through the grass. He was such a wee little guy - no bigger that my baby finger.
I  mowed over the nest in the grass. 
 I put him back where I found him and covered him up with the ball of fluff and dead grass and left him for his mumma to find.  I imagine she did. This little guy may well be responsible for infestations in my house in the fall, but what else could a mother do? 

This baby robin was hopping along the side walk chirping like crazy! Shhh! your mother knows where you are! 

I've never seen so many bunny nests as this year. I'm sure they just find a divet in the lawn and fill it with fluff and grass then call it a nest. Still, they are difficult to see even if you're looking right at them! 

This little oriole was hanging on for dear life; it was so so windy.

Notice the similarities between this little new guy and this old guy?!

Hope all is well with you!
