Hey Y’all!

There’s a cracked little bird egg on my front walk today. I assume it fell out of its nest in the tree.

I know life goes on, but as I’m sitting here, listening to the birds chirp outside my front window, I can’t help but wonder about the mama bird. Is she missing her lost egg/baby?

Birds probably don’t have the capacity for emotions or deep thoughts, but I’d like to believe that because she’s a mama, she must feel some sense of loss.

Too romantic an idea? Well, maybe Mama Bird doesn’t even realize one of her eggs fell out (she does have a bird-brain after all) … or worse, maybe the old bird thought 3 eggs were too much to handle and nudged one over the nest’s edge.

So much for personification of the bird … sometimes my mind just goes off on these tangents. I guess it’s a good thing we’re not mama birds. I’d have trouble feeding my babies already-chewed-up worms! But if I were a bird, I’m certain I’d be grieving (loudly, over all the other birds) my one lost egg.

Anyway … here are some more random pics from around my home.
