Real Nesting Experince !!!

Far from the city's dust and heat,
I get but sounds and odors sweet.
Who can wonder I love to stay,
Week after week, here hidden away,
In this sly nook that I love the best --
This little brown house like a ground-bird's nest?”

Little sparrow in action.

We all have fascination to fly like bird. Even our little kids attracted to birds when they see them.

Someday back one of activity of little sparrow caught my eye…its truly amazing experience for me to witness the same. Friends u won’t believe me but I caught eye on bird which was in process of making little nest for herself…Since this is watchable from my balcony I included my daughter Khwaish for the same activity.

Khwaish very patiently observe whole activity and gave me some of outputs she grasps from the same. Although we have read books on birds topic and nesting with little kids but this out of imagination practical experience to watch the same was great one.

A few days back I observed from my balcony that one little sparrow is making to and fro moments again and again to tree, plucking the leave and carrying twigs each time it comes to tree. I caught the sparrow picture while holding the plucked leaf in the beak…What should I say’’Fantastic’’.How god have given them power to build their home not with hand but with beak.

Now we knew that bird is process of making a nest…next exploration was to find out hidden nest. For the same we moved to our terrace and between some pipelines little bird was making her nest.Khwaish had sneak peak view of the nest and felt excited to witness the whole process.

Closer look of Nest.

Feedback by Khwaish…

·         First of all birds making nest with leaves-green and dry (brown) leaves.

·         Bird was little sparrow.

·         Witness her nest.

·         You need to be very patient while watching the birds…no noise please.

Friends involving khwaish in one bird related activity was real fun and good learning.

I feel like adding little feather to our activity list ;) winks.
