When I answered the phone I was surprised to hear that it was storyteller Kate Dudding calling from Albany. " Ellouise, quick, look, one of the blue birds has hatched."
I brought up the site and we kept talking about lots of other things while we both oogled the newly hatched bird and the Mom. I have never been close enough to see a mother bird hop down into a nest and place a bit of food in a wide open beak.
There are still two more eggs to hatch. Don't miss it.
