Just like that, they are grown and gone…

The last two days we have been watching as the birds have practiced flapping their wings so they could get ready to fly…

Yesterday afternoon, the first bird took his first flight to a neighboring branch as his siblings watched… When the mom came back and fed the ones in the nest, that brave bird flew right off with his mom while we watched!

And then there were two…

This morning, we came down and there was only one…

Mommy camped out at the kitchen window all morning so she could catch the whole process on video, and she got it all! This little bird took his sweet time, but finally got up the nerve to make his first flight!

Now all we have is an empty nest, and some wonderful memories of Sweetie, Stretchy and Yum-Yum. We hope you enjoyed watching them grow as much as we did!
