{ Friday Foto Friends #30 }



This robin has decided to raise her young in the crepe myrtle right up against our house.  Plus, it's right beside our water hose and so close to our back door that she tries to attack me every time I walk out the door.  It took much bravery on my part to get these pics because the entire time she was trying to flog me!!! ;-)  I wanted to get pics of the four gorgeous blue eggs inside, but she decided I was getting way too close for her comfort.....
and mine, too! 






See that little beady black eye?
It kept staring at me and I actually caught her with her mouth closed because she was chirping up a storm and it wasn't a happy song she was singing.  Maybe, with Pappy's help (he wasn't home when I snapped these) I can get a pic of the babies once the eggs hatch.  Although, I might have to post pics of my injuries, too!

This makes the 5th bird's nest that we've had up really close to our house.....
two robins, two Carolina wrens and a mockingbird.

Sawyer, our second oldest grand-boy said Pappy and Nannie sure has a lot of nature at their house.

Yes, we sure do, sweet Boy.

And, Nannie loves it.....
well, except for the dive bombing.....LOL!

PLEASE link up your photos below of whatever makes your heart happy!

HOPE everybody has a wonderful weekend!

  4. Did have much photos to blog this week. It's been crazy.But I did post one of my favorite pics from Heritage Days in Kodak, TN a couple of years ago. It is again this weekend. You should bring the grandbabies over to it. Bouncy houses, live blue grass music, tons of fun.

  5. The birds can be very protective...like any momma would be! It will be fun to see the little ones when they hatch. Maybe she won't be quite so aggressive once they hatch. Great shots and glad you aren't bleeding! ;)

  6. Grandchildren say the cutest things! I love talking with Ava and Emma, they make my heart sing! Beware of Momma Bird, they can get nasty if you get too close to their babies!!

  7. We have doves nesting under our deck every year. They are protective, but haven't been aggressive in any way, even when I try to take a pic. It's just too dark under there. I wish I could get up closer.

  8. I'm glad that no photographer was injured getting these photos! Momma birds are very protective! A few years back I found a nest with baby birds in a bush at the front of my house. I didn't touch it or anything and the Momma wasn't there at the time. The next day, the baby birds were gone from the nest so she must have moved them. At least, I hope that is what happened. Have a great weekend.
