I withdrew my hand immediately and slid the window shut. Don't worry, i'm not that heartless...there was no way on earth i could destroy that bird's home and its egg. I decided to let her be for a while and perhaps watch her egg hatch and her baby bird grow. It was an exciting thought.
So, the next day, i went into hubby's bathroom to shower (yes, i like his own more than my own), i peeped into the nest and was greeted by the sight of another little white egg. Yippe! Meanwhile, each time i enter the bathroom, Mama bird flies away.....little does she know that contrary to what they say, i'm even more afraid of her than she is of me.....that's why i attempted to throw her nest away when i first saw it......shebi they said that the best form of defense is attack? *shrugs* Meanwhile, she was not home when i tried to destroy her house. If she was there, and as much as flapped a wing in my direction, i would have run out of the bathroom screaming and slammed the door.

After the day i saw the second egg i kept waiting patiently for the day they would hatch. It took so long that i began to wonder if they would ever hatch at all, but Mama bird was patient....dilligently sitting on her eggs to keep them warm.....well, except for the times i entered the bathroom to shower.
So this morning, i entered but she didn't leave. I put on a brave front and shooed her away, and she flew off her nest reluctantly, but she didn't go far.....i was soon to find out why. I heard tiny chirps coming from the nest. i peeped and what did i see??!!!
Little Tweety! (Yes, i named it)
It had scanty feathers, it's eyes were not open yet, and it looked so fragile and tiny......as in God is totally AWESOME! Birth is always a miracle...whether humans or animals. The second egg hasn't hatched yet, considering that the hatched one was laid first. It will hatch by this evening or tomorrow morning. I have aleady named that one 'Little Tinko'.
Of course i took a picture.....
I wonder how long they will live on our window sill.
