A bird’s eye view

by

The other day, my daughter came in the house and asked if she could borrow my phone to take a picture.

Then she ran back outside, climbed a tree, and took this shot:

The cool thing is, yesterday when she climbed the tree again, she said there was grass inside the nest, so we’re hoping to see eggs pretty soon. :)

    So fun. We've been able to watch a cardinal family a couple years now, but never with such a good view.

    What a neat nest. You will have to let us know what type of bird shows up and calls it home.

    What a cool kid you have to want to document such a thing and what a cool mom she has to let her do it!

    FUN! We watched a momma robin build a nest last summer on the utility meter on our house. Then we saw the eggs, newly hatched baby birds and one protective momma…especially when we mowed the lawn or tried to get the sprinkler hooked up. Hope your daughter keeps taking pictures of the progress!Peace and blessings to your day!

    We have watched many birds through the years. It is so fun to watch the kids faces as the birds grow. We also, have Charlotte in front of our kitchen window spinning a web every year. The webs can be so pretty. https://debbiellbriskincare.blogspot.com/Stop over for my anniversary give awayhttps://debbiellbriskincare.blogspot.com/2010/05/anniversary-month.html

    It's great when they use their creative eye and "see" more than the norm. Photography is such a solid tool for expanding a child's mind and understanding of the world around them…is for us too.

    Isn't it wonderful when your children take the initiative to "DO" something so creative and beautiful?
