Happy Place

We arrived in Lake Tahoe last Sunday and it’s been beautiful. Our son, daughter-in-law and two grandsons joined us on Wednesday. So now our time here is perfect!

The first day here I spotted several birds fly back & forth to a tree near our deck. 

Then I noticed that they were tending to a very small cup shaped nest. With my telephoto lense I could see three little heads pop up. 

Two days later one of the baby birds was out on the branch next to the nest. He was flapping his wings to practice flying.  Mom & dad were still flying back and forth with food and encouragement. He moved further and further from the nest as the day turned to dusk.  His siblings inside the nest were standing up and flapping their wings too. 

Within minutes all three left their nest and were jumping from branch to branch and before we knew it they were gone. 

Oh yeah and Maggie is loving being a mountain dog!
