My Guests, A Tailor bird Family (Part V)

I just could not wait to come back from work after knowing one baby Tailorbird had left in the morning.

It was now 7:30PM, fourteenth of May. The nest was found empty. They had left me, and my story would be ended right at this point of time.

But to my surprise, one of them was found perching on a piece of leaf below the nest. They had at least one representative staying back to greet me with good-bye.

It tried to tell me some stories about the past events: how brave its siblings were to perform their first flight, yet on the other way round, how funny they were to dive down instead of going up during the initial trial.

"Really? They had to keep hopping and diving for the whole afternoon before making their successful maiden flight."

"Ha-ha, you will have yours too."

The good thing about the parent leaving the nest at night was that I enjoyed a dialogue with the baby without any disturbance, but who were going to take care of this little one for the whole night? Many of my neighbours' cats were wandering around. They never catch rats, but might fool around with this little one.

So I decided to bring it back to the nest. Though refused to go inside, it was at least safer at this height.

The next day would be my rest day. See you in the early morning. Just wait for me. Good night.

What a charmer, wonderful pictures.

that must have been the representative to thank you and your family for having them as guests!

I hope the little fella has a safe flight :)

It's so cute! If the parents don't return, I guess you will have to feed it and show it how to fly.

Those are amazing pictures of your last guest. He/She is not afraid of you and dutifully goes back into the nest. I hope you will still see your friend in the morning.

Now you made me worried too. I am worried that the cat might get the little for dinner. I am getting hooked now. Can't wait for the next day.

Rainfield, you touched my heart with that post and those photos. He is precious and I would be worried as well but you took care of him. I'm getting teary eyed. I can't wait for tomorrow's post.

It was so excited the check them out everyday. I could not know what to be expected daily.

Out on the prairie:
The little one is really cute. I am going to show you some good pictures in the next post.

I did hope so, and it made me so busy to keep my eye on the chick every minute.
"Cat, cat, please don't come".

If the parents did not return, I'll give up. I do not know how to be its parent.

I always struggled to hope so. There were so many variances with those cats around.

The story is not planned. I have gone through the same drama as you do.

Poetic Shutterbug:
Sigh.. Everybody is worrying about the chick.
"Hi, little one, how can you take care of yourself? Where is your parent?"

Great photos of the cute baby bird! I'm glad it's safer in the nest.

George said...

It was very nice of that one baby bird to stay around to tell you goodbye. I hope he made it safely through the night, and you were able to see him before he left.

Cheryl said...

What a lovely little bird. And how very well brought up it is (already!) to have manners and stay behind and thank you for allowing his/her family to be guests. I do hope nothing got the little one in the night.

Ratty said...

This is another great story in this series. It's a very cute little bird. I hope it stayed safe and was able to finally fly away like the others.

Mike said...

Rainfield, once again some great shots. I hope nature also takes care of your little friend.

Harumi said...

Little bird," I am hungry, can you get me some worm please!!!"

Seriously, I hope his mum hasn't rejected him. This is what my parents told us never to KAJOW the nestlings.
