At that very moment, the shadow of some birds crossed branches of the dogwood. I gladly expected birds had left early spring came back to our dogwoods tree. I approached the dogwood cautiously and found broods on a branch. Maybe they seemed to have just left their nest. Four chickens perched on the branch of the dogwood closely.
Maybe the right young's eyes rested on my camera. Though I took them through the window.
But where was their nest? My husband said when he went the garden six days before, two birds( maybe their parent) flied down to attack him. So their nest must have been around there.
They on the branch seemed to fall down with strong wind but four chickens clung the branch together. They were squirming busily but they froze with my husband's footstep. After the footstep receded they started squirming again. I wonder why they fly away with footsteps? Parent said them to stay here or they can't fly without parent's lead or? I remembered my children raising.
And when mother bird and farther bird each bring worms they pressed with yellow bills full open. Parents give them food in turn,I wonder. I thought bringing up four children takes a lot of doing.
Parent brings worms frequently. I wonder what this worm is ,or where they find from? Though there are small bushes neighborhood.
I was not weary of watching them then the entrance chime rang.
When I came back here from the entrance, their figures had already disappeared.
The family started off. I cannot help wishing they survive in the hard natural world though the encounter with them was only for 30 minutes.
I think they are a family of Japanese bush warbler.
This year may be a great year roses. Roses in the garden neighborhood and ours are full blooming. After raining.
Thank you for coming, dear friends! Have a lovely day!
