Love Child

Back in March of this year, I had a post entitled "Lovey Dovey" here with this photo:


Yesterday I was working in the garden and discovered the sweetest baby. I was able to sneak in the house, grab my camera and snapped a photo.

He or she was hard to see at first; very well camouflaged with all its dots and streaks. After I took the photo, she hid under the blueberry bush for a while. Later, her parents returned to the garden and cooed softly for her in that low pitch. The baby responded with its own tiny coo and they reunited. So sweet. You never know what you will see in your own back yard!!

(As always, click on the photo for a closer look).

one time I found a baby dove in a front yard and i waited all day and the mama didnt come back. I was so sad and I took the baby in and nursed her back to health. She passed away many days later unfortunately but I will always remember her!
blessings to your baby!

So beautiful! Not something that will happen here I´m afraid, Teodor is a bit to skillful catching birds unfortunately.

Have a great day!
