Late last year, i found a nest in my garden and blogged about it here . I managed to visit the nest everyday and took a lot of photos but wasn’t able to make a follow-up entry about it. With Escape as the new theme for this week’s photo challenge, now is the chance to share with you the photo highlights of my exciting garden finds.
Day 1: I found 2 eggs in the nest.
Day 13, i found out that only 1 egg hatched and i couldn’t find the other egg.
Day 15, i noticed how remarkable it had grown in just 2 days. I always see mommy bird guarding its baby. When its her time to hunt for food that’s the only time that i could go near the nest to take photos.
Day 17, the baby bird is now partially covered with tiny feathers. It had grown much bigger with eyes still partially closed.
Day 20, almost all of its skin is now covered with feathers. It had grown bigger and almost occupying the entire nest.
Day 22, the whole body is now covered with mature feathers and it’s body is now as big as the nest. It is obviously well-fed, thanks to the devotion of the mommy bird in feeding its young.
Day 23, i visited the nest again and found it empty.
I’m sure it had learned how to fly and escaped the boundaries of its nest ready to face the world… and the life cycle continues…
