Found 'em.

I forgot to tell you I found the robins who had moved out of that nest in front of the church. They moved into the mulberry tree behind our house. Josiah was fascinated. He went out 2 or 3 times a day to check on them. Twice he found a baby bird on the ground outside the nest. One time it was still alive and Daddy "rescued" it. (No lectures please, we know.) The next time Daddy helped give the baby bird a proper burial ("proper" being "in our trash can").
They have since grown up and flown off and the nest stands empty. I find it amusing that we see more "nature" here in the heart of downtown Bethesda than we ever saw in suburbia. Not that it wasn't there, we just see more of it here. Birds, rabbits, fireflies, know, nature.
