>do I get bathroom points for this?

>If you ever decide to take a pee (or other things) in one of our upstairs washrooms, and you happen to peek out the window, you will be delighted. Last spring, a robin nested on the sill of my parents’ bathroom window, and this year, she made a nest on the guest washroom sill. The other day (Thursday, maybe? MAYBE BABY!?) when I went to use the facilities, I checked on Mama Robin, and accidentally scared her away. I felt bad, but then….I saw this:

The only thing cooler than seeing these babies was seeing the look on Kirk’s face when he saw them. Complete, utter joy and surprise, and I wished I had the camera ready to get that moment…but…these moments will have to do…
I would like to introduce you to Hannah and Montana. I’m not sure if you can see it, but the bird on the top of the pic (I think it is Montana) had his head stuck underneath Hannah. We watched him struggle to get it out for awhile…no dice. He was still stuck. Then Mama Robin flew to the window, all scary and protector-like and we yelled (it was startling, ok?).

I showed my mother the birds when she got home today, and there are no more eggs…Hannah and Montana have been joined by their brothers, Freddie and Mercury. Mom’s response to seeing the birds?

“Awwwwwwww babies! They’re hideous!”

  1. >My apartment has bird babies too! Except they’re probably way more hideous than your birds. My birds are PIGEONS. They are realllly nasty-looking and very loud. Ian dubbed them “Spick and Span”.
