A Birds Song and Melody – My Music

I realize the music I love most is the melody of singing birds.  I love waking up to their songs in the mornings and listening to them while sitting or working outside.

Monday morning I was doing the daily routine with the dogs and checking out the garden when all of a sudden I hear a dense thump.  I looked up where something fell from the trees above me.  Then a bird flying past me swooped down to the grass dropping what I thought was stick or something for repairing her nest.  I walked over to the area where whatever it was fell looking around I saw it lying in the tall grass, a baby bird.  It was gone, asleep never to awaken again.  I was walking Scarlett back to toward the house, she paused began smelling the ground I looked to see what it was – another sleeping baby bird, gone-the something the flying bird dropped.  The only thing I could think of was the babies drowned in all the rain we have received this week – seven inches. That may not seem like much,  but we were already heading in the “drought” range. The rain put us up two inches above normal.

Me being a mother and Nana, watching too many Disney movies and reading children’s books…

could only imagine the sorrow and heartbreak that mother Robin bird might have felt. I was overcome with such a sadness for her.  

I can only hope she gets to lay more eggs and become a mother.

  1. Mom!! No sad post ok? Geez, I’m sitting here at work, reading, thinking its going to be about a little birdie singing or something. Then before reading the post I see the picture of Disney princess so I’m thinking you had a Sleeping Beauty Moment, singing with the bird in the back yard, a Cinderella moment, the birds helped you water the garden, a Snow White moment, the bunnies and birds helped you clean something…. but no, I read that two little birds went to birdie heaven and are sleeping, never to wake up again…. so now I have this overwhelming feeling of sadness. Poor little birdies 😦
