The momma bird who just wouldn’t give up has been rewarded with three babies. Much to the dismay of our housekeeper, Charles, this bird kept up her nest building efforts right over the door to the cottage! She rebuilt her nest day after day until, finally, I told Charles to “throw in the towel” and let her have her way. Yesterday her three eggs hatched and we snapped a picture from a healthy distance. Check back for updates on the progress of our sweet trio.
