Baby birds

baby birds

Those were some warm days of June 2015 when I took these pictures and today while going through some of my older posts, I decided to share them again. In my house there’s a lamp above the car porch and the Bulbul bird thought it would be a nice place to design her nest.

For some days the father and mother birds preferred to remain closer to their nest and one night when mother bird finally decided to spent her time in her home, I made a reckless mistake.

In my excitement to capture the moment, I quietly mounted a stool and slowly took my camera closer to the nest but what happened next is a history, for the bird got frightened and left her nest.

My parents were angry, for in the middle of the night my act of capturing a picture has created a whole trouble and I was so embarrassed that the whole night I continued watching a dream about a bird.

Luckily, in the morning the birds were back and I took a sigh of relief. For, previous night everyone at home was so angry that I was considering myself to be a culprit 🙂

In the next days I remained conscious and with some help from my mother, I succeeded in capturing these pictures.

My parents weren’t satisfied so they made this protective layer of cloth beneath the lamp.

In this whole process of making a nest safe the birds made a lot of noise.

After some days of finishing this stunt of making a protective layer, I decided to look for eggs.The shape of the nest was such that despite standing on the ladder, I wasn’t able to look inside. So, I took my camera closer and clicked the button. Once, I got down I was happy to see the picture of these eggs.

After some days of wait the baby birds finally arrived.

They were pink and featherless.

Within days they were big and they looked ready to fly.

Baby birds have finally arrived!

There is a pin drop silence in my home. My nieces and nephews are gone and I’m missing them.

These fourteen days were very busy and I found little time to read and write. So, my apologies for late response 🙂

Now, I like to share these pics. Remember reading about “Bulbul bird” in my home. Yes, the baby birds are here and both father and mother birds are excited.

These days the parents are vigilantly observing their babies. The little birds seem to be naughty and I guess they are ready for their first flight 🙂

Bird in my home!

It’s really hot here. Yesterday, the temperature in my city was 109.4 F. The sun looks furious but we are not taking it seriously. In fact, we have some other matters to enjoy 🙂

The reason for this happiness in our moods is Bulbul bird. Yes, the bird has laid eggs and we are all waiting for its hatchlings.

Here are some pictures.

The design looks quite intricate and the hard work of the little bird is evident.

The bird found the light bulbs in our car porch to be a safe place.

My parents were not satisfied. So, they just made a safety covering beneath it.

It was a great scene. As, we were busy in covering its house, the little birds became so anxious. They continued to make noise and remained close to their nest. The picture is not clear but the bird can be seen among the leaves.

One day, I saw the Bulbul was not inside her nest. I climbed up the ladder and tried to look. But, the design of the nest is such that it looks like a deep bowl. So, I placed the camera closer and took the picture. When, I saw it there were three eggs. It was a moment of joy. My younger sister and my niece got excited.

The birds had arrived. So, I immediately got down.

Later, what we saw from the window, brought smile on our faces. The Bulbul peeked inside her nest as if she was making sure about the presence of eggs.

These days we are also enjoying listening to the melodious voice of this bird.We are all waiting for nestlings. I’ll update you about them.

Hope you enjoy seeing these pics 🙂
