Where Have All The Birdies Gone?

Some of you have
asked me how our
babies are doing?

Looking at this picture-
What is your best guess?
Want a second picture
just to make sure?
How about a few words?
Nana! They'hre GONE!
Whehre did they GO?
Whut?

Someone is headed 
over to sit on the
steps to have a little
cry all by herself.
Another hard life lesson.
Most little birds fly 
the nest at some point
 and we are
NEVER READY....

Oh dear, what a sad little face! The birds can boast that they came from the best nest ever though.

Just precious. Perhaps you can do something special with that sacred nest.

uh oh, she looks pretty upset, they probably haven't gone far, she just won't recognize them, poor Sweet Cheeks,

DearHelenHartman said...

Awwww. That IS a hard life lesson. You should find the episode of The Andy Griffith Show called something like Opie the Birdman - it's one of the very best ones and the last line will make her smile again.

Awww, poor SweetCheeks!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Awww, she got so attached to them. She's going to see lots of baby birds in her lifetime; especially if you get them back in that spot. Maybe that will console her and be something to look forward to.

Awww..poor sweet cheeks. She wanted to be the mommy. Have a great weekend Diana. I know you are one busy lady!

Craftberry Bush said...

aww.don't remind me..thankfully I still have some time with my birdies...poor sweet cheeks..:( xo

Japolina said...

I love her fashion style! She is the cutest thing ever!

Susie said...

Diana, You go put an "x" on those steps, where sweetcheeks is crying....cause when that little one flys the nest, you need to know where to sit and cry. Honest girlfriend, it will hurt so badly. My beautiful Sierra, flew to Florida...it just about killed me . I only survive because she is in love and happy. Tell s.c. I am still looking for my baby cardinals. I often wonder do birds come back to their nest, once they fly away.???? Anyone?? xoxo, Susie

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

but do they have to fly so far away??? xoxoxo

Maria Elena said...

Oh, no! Poor SweetCheeks! I know she was upset! The birds sure grew up fast and didn't stay long.

It is a mixed blessing when they are gone-we miss seeing them but no more mess. Last night we had a whopper of a storm and I worried about our Dove's nest in the gutter. We got 2" of rain in 45 min. plus hail-all I could think of is were there still eggs, were there babies-did they make it and where was momma? I doubt we'll be checking today.
Have a great weekend dear friend-thanks for your kind prayers for Hunter.
Love, Noreen

Lucille said...

Poor little SweetCheeks, I guess she's finding out that life can sometimes hurt. When we see our little ones hurting, we hurt right along with them, perhaps even more than them.

I love the comment about marking an X on the crying spot! How nice to know exactly where to go when you want to let those feelings out. ~ Maureen

Julie Marie said...

Such a kind and gentle little girl... I cry too when my birdies leave the nest... but she will see them flying all around her and chirping "hello" to her!... xoxo Julie Marie

♥ Sonny ♥ said...

awww dang.. yes they do fly away and we are never ready.. bless her heart.

Janet said...

Awwww..poor little gal.

What else can I say?

Take care, Janet W

Pam said...

Ahh, it's a hard lesson to learn, but it happens. I'm doing a post later tonight about my birdies being gone and I could not be happier!!! They poop way too much for me.

bj said...

Truer words were never spoken. :((

Gretchen said...

It's kind of metaphor for life. Welcome to the real world "Sweet Cheeks". As a Nana don't you just hate when they have to see those things?

Ruth Kelly said...

I think they flew over to my place to play with the two magpies that taunt my cats every morning.

Zoey said...

Life lessons are tough.

Poor Sweet Cheeks....

Cozy Little House said...

Oh, what a great story. You covered a lot about life here.

Nellie said...

This is sometimes a painful lesson for many of us to learn. Bless little SweetCheeks!

Ivy and Elephants said...

Bless her sweet heart! She is so adorable.
Hugs,

Karena said...

Sandra said...

Awwww poor baby :( It's hard when you get attached, I still do that with animals outside :)

Kelly said...

Awwwww! I understand how she feels. I've gotten close to little birds that have nested with us before. It's kind of sad when they're gone. But at least they're healthy and flying around to make families of their own one day. We once found a baby bird on the ground and tried our best to save it. The next morning, we found it dead. My youngest son cried terribly afterwards. He was so sad. He even named him and hoped that we could raise it. It was not meant to be.

Sue said...

poor Sweet Cheeks...did you give her a big hug?.....Have a great weekend!

Heaven's Walk said...

Another life lesson learned...sometimes with difficulty. :) ♥ What a sweet heart she has, D.

Lynn @ UpCountry Olio said...

How true...I didn't think I would ever get used to my empty nest but I have found a few things to fill it now.

Wsprsweetly Of Cottages said...

Awwww...she has the tenderest little heart. No...we are never, ever ready! Mine have flown and I'm still not ready!!

Patty Patterson said...

Well, we are seldom ready! I wouldn't say NEVER! I have a son whom I am ready to see spread his wings and fly! He'll be 28 next month and he's still at home. I do like having him, though. I just have plans for his room. *LOL*

lynn said...

bless her heart!

Little Miss Maggie said...

How sad. They left so soon? They do grow up too fast.

Donna said...

No we are not!! Not at any age! (well take that back, I have a friend who has 30 somethings at home - they NEED to spread their wings and fly on away!) But mostly, we never want to see them go!

It's OK Sweet Cheeks, (pat, pat, pat) you can cry a bit!

Blessings,
Donna

I know how she feels. Hubby and I found three birds that Momma bird booted out of nest. She was feeding them on the ground. Well I could not believe it. That night it called for cold weather. These little birds were having just a wee feather covering. Anyhow. I looked out an hour later. Momma bird was showing them how to fly. Then in the morning underneath where she booted them out. They and her were huddled to-gether. So now I am a happy camper but to a child they have loss their best friends.Of course they take it a little different then grownups. A cry is good for her soul. She will be okay later.
