So Many Birds: Spring is Here!

I went to my grandma’s house in Westchester and was delighted to find out that there were two birds’ nests outside my grandma’s, one in front of the house and the other in the back.  Throughout the afternoon, my grandma and I went back and forth to check on the birds.  We tried ever so carefully to open the doors without making too much noise to scare off the mother birds.  Inevitably, one of the mothers flew off a few times, so we convinced ourselves that we did not cause her flight but rather that she was getting food for her newly hatched young.  I saw a baby bird in its nest for the first time ever! It was beautiful though not actually because it had barely any feathers.  There it is in its nest!


The other nest’s eggs have not hatched yet.  Below is a photo of the mother laying on her eggs.


Ironically, we ate another type of bird for lunch – cornish hen. I tried not to think about the fact that a cornish hen is a bird.  It was very delicious nonetheless, and we ate steamed asparagus alongside.

The rhododendrons were in full bloom and looked beautiful. Even to this day, I think I am in candy land when I see them.
