Recently a pair of little birds travel often between the tree canopy and my front balcony. It seems they are searching for something. To my big surprise, they are looking for a place for their love nest! After a careful consideration of the week, decided to live in my balcony. In order to understand these latest family members, I searched on Internet and know they are the yellow-bellied sunbirds.

What smart birds. The balcony adds protection for their future generation. Away from wind and rain and natural enemies, because most of the predators stay clear of human activity.

The following days are busy and full of excitement. The first thing I do every day is to check their love nest progress. After a-week long hard working, the prototype has been set. Wait wait, what are you still doing? Flower petals, more flower petals, scented grass for the nest, flowers for the bed, what a romantic couple! Two weeks later, an elaborate and highly decorated nest is done. Where did you get so many pink petals?

The mother is already in the nest. Look forward to the birth of a bird baby. Can’t wait anymore……

最近一对小小鸟繁忙往返于门前的树梢和我家阳台植物,貌似在探查什么。没想到,他们是在为他们的爱巢选址!经过为时一周的仔细考量,决定安居我家阳台。为了了解这最新的家庭成员,上网查询知道他们叫黄腹太阳鸟。
好聪明的鸟儿,选址在这里,应该也是为了后代安全考虑。远离风雨和天敌,因为大部分的捕食者都是避开人类的。
接下来是忙碌的日子,也是兴奋的日子。我每天第一件事情就是看看他们的爱巢进程。当雏形已定,没想到鸟儿也是浪漫的主,香草为巢,鲜花为床。一根一根的草儿垒上去差不多一周完成了雏形,却用了又一周的时间去装修。哪儿找来的这么多粉色的花瓣?
鸟妈妈已经在巢里了。 期待小鸟宝宝的出生吧。等不及了……

和我一起期待鸟宝宝的出生吧。
