Time for an update on Eunice the robin and her nest full of new babies. I had named the offspring Muddy, Sam and Otis then to my surprise we found a fourth youngster who we named Greta. I have watched in wonder as mom has kept the brood healthy and happy. I am amazed at the dedication these birds have for their young ones. They make sure they are fed and taken care of and then teach them all they need to know to make it once they leave the nest. We should make sure we do that with our own children. So often we set them free without teaching them to fly. We could learn a lot from birds.

When I went to check on the nest yesterday it was empty. The little dudes have earned their wings and were flying around the back yard. I am going through empty nest syndrome now but was so lucky to get to watch it all take place. Thank you mother nature.
