Flying the coup

I just ran across a bamboo wind chime with a mama bird watching over her nest.  It reminded me of a bird family that would always build their nest on the outside sill of my parents house.  Year after year the nest would be built there and we could watch as the babies grew.  I especially liked to watch them as they were being fed.  The delivery of the meal would arrive and the open mouths would all be pointed to the sky.  This would fascinate me for days until all of a sudden, I would look out the window to an empty nest.

This year, I visited my Father who still lives in that house.  I had missed the activities of my favorite bird family, but I did see the nest.  The babies had all flown the coup, but I stopped to ponder the activities that led up to this years empty nest…  and smiled.
