So we had eggs in the fern out front, and I've tried to be careful when watering. I had hoped that the mama bird could still take care of her babies while I took care of my plant. Today, when I took the fern down to water it, I was rewarded with tiny, furry looking baby birds. There are four of them - all of the eggs hatched. Sarah, Eric, and I were able to see them open their mouths for food, and then tuck their heads down again when no worms were supplied. I guess watering will be a bit trickier now. I'm picturing chasing a frantic, hopping baby bird back into its nest . . .
