A bird’s eye view

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. :)

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

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

  3. That is like the most exciting thing ever! How fun Genny! I can't wait to see how it all develops for you. so fun!

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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

  7. Great shot! My mom has had hummingbird nest in her courtyard for three years…we have been hoping to see them this year but they have not yet returned. Hope you have that awesome experience with your kiddos!

  8. Oh how fun! We have doves building a nest in our backyard. I can't seem to get close enough yet to take a picture!

  9. that is so awesome!! what a great thing to share with your dd!

  10. She got a great shot!! I have been watching some birds live in a nest outside my window… its quite entertaining!Blessings-Amanda

  11. What a great picture! I am a new follower from FFF at the Mom Bloggers Club, so glad to have found your great blog! Hope you have a wonderful Wednesday!EloiseMommy2TwoGirlshttps://mommy2twogirls.blogspot.com/

  12. So fun! I hope you see eggs too! We have two babies birds in our nest now. :) One hatched yesterday and one today. I think I am loving it more than my kids.

  13. 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.

  14. What a lovely thing to capture on camera! Spring is definitely one of my favorite seasons. :)stephanie@metropolitanmama.net
