And my birdies flew the coop. I missed their departure, but last night I walked outside and there were like six birds in my little oak tree, and as soon as I walked down the stairs they all flew off and it startled me. I blurted out “what the hell is going on” because I talk to birds, trees, seedlings, plants and sometimes even walls I bump into, and made nothing of it. Then when I came out this afternoon, it was eerily quiet on the porch, so I climbed up on my step ladder and sure enough they were all gone.
They grow up so quickly. Now I don’t know what to do with the nest. Should I leave it there or clean up so new tenants will move in?
