Near tragedy....


Joe went out to our rental today to do some work, and he started chopping down an old cherry tree that had never done anything.........all of a sudden a couple of mockingbirds started dive bombing him, and he realized there was a nest in the tree with 2 babies that was now on the ground....soooooooooo ......what to do??? He picked up a big branch and nailed it to the trunk of the tree that was left, and put the nest and the babies back in it......and we watched and waited.......pretty soon mom and dad, after flying back and forth for an hour, finally fed them, and all seems well.........it certainly is a funny looking tree right now, but until those babies are gone, it will have to look funny! Heres a pic of them, I had never seen Mockingbird babies up close......
