If you find a bird nest outside of your window…


If you find a bird nest outside of your window, do not worry that the birds are overheated in the 100 degree weather. Do not open the window to try and create shade for them. Do not show your children how tiny they are and do not try to document the whole experience for your blog.

If you do, the baby birds may just make a run for it…

And they won’t be nearly as cute as you imagined.

{The above picture was followed by three bird babies running around on the counter. Followed by one falling behind the radiator. Followed by me having to rescue it, Diego style. Much screeching ensued. And some hyperventilating. Pardon the lack of photography. I was a tad busy.}

The birds are now safe and sound, but having nightmares, I’m sure. As am I.

    I think they look awesome but I certainly wouldn’t want one behind my radiator.

    ps – the main dude in the top pic looks like he’s smiling but it’s more of a spider-to-the-fly way. did your research indicate whether or not birds can conspire?
