Several days ago I posted about a Chipping Sparrow nest located in a fern on our front porch. The lovely mother had four eggs in the nest and then.....two of them mysteriously disappeared. I say mysteriously because it looked as if the nest, and fern, had not been disturbed whatsoever. Thus, we were left with two very tiny eggs to watch over.
And then this week one of the eggs hatched. I do think I could have fit that baby bird into a thimble. It truly was that small.
