Part 3: Goodbye Yolanda

And then there were two…

Yeah I admit, when I first discovered that my wreath was invaded by birds, I wasn’t happy at all. But over the course of a couple of weeks, I am glad I allowed them to stay. For those of you who haven’t heard about my recent wreath invasion, you can catch up here and here.

Despite the frustration and ounce of anger I felt at the beginning, I can honestly say that I did learn a few things.

What I learned from the wreath invasion:

1. It is the little things in life we need to focus on. Being more mindful of our surroundings, appreciating life.

2.  It was a good learning experience for my kids! They got up every morning to check on the babies and every night to watch them all nestle in with their mother.

3. Even though I am actually kind of sad that the birds have flown away, my heart is full. Full of joy, full of smiles. I had fun watching our residents grow and become independent in such a short period of time.

emptyAnd then, they all flew…

Not only did this experience teach me a few things, I think my cat Onyx was really happy the birds stayed for as long as they did.  They kept her entertained for 3 weeks straight!


I hope Mama Yolanda and her babies are doing well.

  • I’m sure Yolanda and her chicks are happy where they are now. Focusing on little things allows you to learn so much.

  • Awe so sweet. I so would feel the same way, it is a double edge sword. Glad the bird flew away to do what it had to do though.

  • Nature is amazing! What a great opportunity for your kids to experience its beauty. Glad mom and babies did what they needed to do!

  • How beautiful to see nature in action. I think it was lucky for you Yolanda chose to nest in your wreath.

  • It’s amazing how the things that initially aggravate us turn into something good, isn’t it? I love when that happens.

  • I love when kids get to learn about nature and experience the science of life.
    I’m glad the cat didn’t eat the birds and the kids had some fun excitement around there.

  • What a cool experience for you and your kids! I bet they will remember this forever. 🙂
