Baby Mockingbirds

There is a Mockingbird nest in one of the trees at Nana and Pop's house. There were four little baby Mockingbirds!

We went out to see the little creatures, being very careful that the Momma wasn't around (Momma Mockingbirds will attack you) and were able to get a few pictures (without touching the nest or the babies, of course).

Unfortunately, when we went out to check on them the next day all four babies were gone. Apparently, something got them as they were not old enough to leave the nest yet as they hadn't even opened their eyes. Nature can be so cruel.
