The Tale of the Cat - Part 3
On the day the babies fledged, MamaCat got very defensive. "Don't you dare touch my Babies!"
And here I found them. Baby in the Rose Bush.
Ouch those thorns!
Baby Punkie Hair was found in a flower pot
Baby in the Flower Pot, hopping away
This baby was found in the Broccoli Bed.
All legs, no tail
MamaCat: Who wants that Photographer to go away? I do!
Mr. Catbird: Thanks for Visiting my Family
The babies are still in the yard. The parents have moved them towards the back overgrown area. I can hear them peeping for food, and then they sound like tiny jingle bells while being fed. If I go towards the back of the yard, the Catbirds come and scold and, believe it or not, Bark at me! When MamaCat becomes distressed, she will mew for her mate. I did spot one of the babies recently flying pretty well with about an inch of tail. He was flapping after Mr. Catbird, begging to be fed of course!
Thank you Skybird for sharing your fun photos of the Catbird family nesting and fledging with us!
