The Bird Nest – Hatchlings

The brave bird that built her nest within the Japanese Bamboo plant under my front porch is now a proud mother bird.

We have quietly kept an eye on the nest everyday, awaiting the hatchlings. And on Thursday the two eggs were hatched.

The mother bird is more busy, now that she has to feed her little ones.

At night, as usual she is always in the nest keeping the little ones warm and protected. Even when we open the door she doesn’t fly away. She sits in the nest protecting her little ones.

We did a search on the Web and I’m quite certain this garden bird is one of the 24 species of Bulbuls.

I'm a Eurasian of Portuguese, English, Scottish and Malay heritage. And my extended family are of Chinese and Indian heritage. My world is made up of different colours like the rainbow. And like the rainbow I am unique. Reading is my form of relaxation, to escape from the drudgery of daily life and enter into a world of the imagination. It is the love of reading that has led me to try my hand in writing short stories and poems. I hope that in some way my stories and poems will take you for a little while away from the drudgery of the present into the pages of imagination. To new friends found, I bid you, Welcome. Sincerely, C.E. Pereira
