It's been awhile since my last post. To be honest it was hard to come back to this blog and I was juggling with the idea of not keeping it up... The thought of new posts slowly drowning out the past posts of Georgie made me sad. But as they say "time heals all wounds" I have a new perspective on this blog and thought it would be nice to keep it up for good Nico. As you all know she loves to take pictures and I love to share them.
This has been the state of our mind for couple weeks... We had a hard time adjusting to how the house seems a lil empty a lil quiet...
It took about a week for Nico to get back into routine. She sat by the back door waiting for George to come home. Truly reminds me of Haichiko. Nico, my family, and I truly thank everyone for their warm messages and support. Really THANK YOU! :-)
Couple of weeks ago while picking lemons off our tree... these two lil guys fell from the tree. It was a struggle to get them back into the nest. Lemon trees have really scary thorns. So we used this and placed it on top:
The mommy bird was thankful and here she is. She literally sat on top of them.
They learn to fly right away and this one got hurt (I believe a cat got him). We stuck him in this large bottle so he can heal. This sat ontop of their nest. It looked like it was going to storm that evening.
The next day we moved him out and put him in this basket.
Of course the mom approves. I think she loves her new home. I recently got bird seeds and placed a lil food bowl for them. They come back every couple hours. In total there are 4 of them. I did massive research to figure out that they were mourning doves and learned they have a tight family unit and loves to come back to their nest.
