I was cutting back the last of Mom's azaleas today in the jungle that is camellias and azaleas all intertwined with vines and grape vines when I realized there was a pissed off bird overhead. Unfortunately, I had not seen her nest in there and apparently while pulling on some vines, I messed up her nest. I think it had some babies in it, but I was never able to really tell. I think they fell out and were on the ground down in the middle of the mess. We tried to find them, but never could. I think I saw one hop around, so I know they were almost ready to fly. I just hope the Mom can stick with them and help them learn faster than she planned. After I realized what I had done, I stopped working there. I didn't even load all the debris on to the truck. I'll get it later when I'm not so upset at what I did. I just hope no predator finds the babies before they can fly!!!!
