A little family has taken up residence in my carport.
They have been there since the beginning of spring and in that time, their chicks have hatched and grown.
Checking on them yesterday, I realized their baby birds are almost fully grown.
They are now even leaving the nest for test flights, the family circling around the carport together, as if the parents are showing them how it is done.
It has been a pleasure watching their little family grow, and even though they will probably soon be moving on, I hope they remember their little home that has served them well, and return to raise the next generation here.
