Love is in the Air

Lindsay: "Mom, come quick! Bring your camera! There is a mommy bird feeding her baby!"

I bring my camera, and go to the dining room window where she is. She points out where she is looking. I look through the camera, using the zoom lens as binoculars.

Me: "Actually, I think it's a boy and girl dove."

Lindsay: "Oh."

There is a flurry of activity on the tree branch.

Lindsay: "What are they doing now?"

Me: "Uh, making baby birds."

Lindsay: "Awww! And only a few days after Valentine's Day, too!"
