Hard to believe how quickly things change… just days ago I was celebrating our new wren fledglings… today they left the nest and flew away. I was blessed for one gossamer moment to hold one of the babies in my palm as I freed it from a long strand of nesting material that kept it from getting airborne. Then it gave a little hop and was gone. All the babies and their mom are now outside the porch where they began… chirping and flittering about in the heavy foliage of those big, ugly privets I always mean to remove and replace… but somehow never can because they are ‘needed’ for yet another season.
not quite as sleek as they will grow up to be and still a little short on tail…but they FLEW… happy life little ones.
