Happy Mother's Day!!

Nobody knows the work it makes
to keep the home together.
Nobody know the steps it takes,
Nobody knows-but Mother.

Are you talking about me, said the little Warbling Vireo??
I caught this shot yesterday not far from the parking lot overlooking the lake!! Such a sweet bird and so determined...and as we all know.. the toughest job in the world is waiting....
you might have to click on this pic...as I didn't want to get too close...

When I watch the bird mothers I realize just how hard life is for them. They are truly to be admired.

Oh Tina! That is such a nice picture of 'mom' on her nest! Yes, indeed - and depending on the bird - they can have up to THREE broods in one season - not any wonder they need to MOLT!
Have a happy day!

Hi TIna,
Happy mother day to all mom of your country. For us, it is latter in France. Iceland does not have any mother day :-(
Very nice picture to illustrate that...
