Our Baby Birds

We've been watching a nest of baby blue jays in the backyard of Nana and Pop Pop's house for quite a while. Every day the three baby birds (triplets!) grew larger and larger. That is, until the other day, when one of the baby birds fell out of its nest, landing at Betty's feet. Everyone ran to grab the triplets, and Sophie the dog, as the upset parent birds dive-bombed the lot of us (striking Erin in the head!), shrieking loudly in concern over the baby bird. Eventually all three baby birds were out of the nest, and their practice flights took them out of the backyard. Ever since then though, the girls have been playing "baby bird" - which usually involves them flying around with their arms out before falling to the ground in a seated position. We're hoping that they aren't waiting for Arthur to bring them worms.
