The Bird Chicks

Last night we all woke to thunder and heavy rainfall. Oh no, I said to my husband, I’m so worried about the bird babies in the apple tree. I hope the nest will not be knocked down by it. He said, go put an umbrella over them. After I had morning coffee I took my camera and went there. How happy I was to see the nest was still there and also the chicks. After my first shot, I saw through the lens, one of the parents land on the edge of the nest with a big worm in hers/his beak. Oh my gosh, I couldn’t believe, such a luck. I shot several pictures in a row hoping that at least some of them would be sharp enough to post on my blog. The one with the worm is very blurry. But, I still wanted to post it because of the huge worm. I’m so happy the birds are okay.
