Only one to go

Furriends, the countdown is on - only one blue egg left to hatch.
The little ones are doing cute little chirps and Mrs. Blackbird is busy feeding them.
And look: Daddy Blackbird is helping feed the chicks too. Now that they have hatched starts the critical time concerning the Magpies. Maybe the chirping attracts them. Mom is determined to defend the featherless feathers.
She got some larvae at the pet shop today to offer to family Blackbird. With the wet weather there should be plenty of Earthworms around but she says she wants to offer some support. Gross! Thanks mom, now that I know what these birds feed on I don't even want to eat them any more.
What's in the bag on the left you ask? Water fleas as a treat for our Fischies. Extra gross!!!

Your Mom is the best! Now, we hope you got something from the pet store as well...like treats or a toy.

Blackbirds hatch bloo eggs? We didnt know that. We thought they were all from robins! Cool...

Birdies eat worms?? Ewwww!

Maybe I'll just forget you told me that...so I can go on dreaming of birdie treats.

Hope the little ones all thrive!

Our gerbil buddies Bert and Ernie's favorite treats are freeze-dried mealworms! I guess lots of things like to eat worms.

Au and Target said...

Have you ever seen a Blue Jay and its partner fly in and squabble over food? They act just like a tag team and frighten the cats.
