"Hi! Can you see me?"
I know that most postmen look out for overly zealous dogs...
Ours needs to watch out for the mamma bird who made a nest in the mailbox beneath ours!
If you look carefully, here you can see Mamma resting on top of all the boxes, surveying the scene before deciding it's safe to go get her babies some food.
Here she is arriving with some food for her babies. At least someone is cleaning up the neighbor's yard! (Tee hee...) She has managed to gather quite a bit from there!
This is what the nest looks like. I think there are two babies inside.
Here they are with their mouths wide open!
You really do need to be careful when you pull up to get the mail; if you surprise the mother, she flies straight out! I wonder if she's almost flown into anyone's car! I know she sure has given my mom a fright... When the girls and I arrived two weeks ago, she was still putting finishing touches on her nest. Katya and Natalia wish we had managed to see the babies when they first hatched.
