Slices of Life..Life and death in the backyard

Email

The sky may not be falling, but in my backyard, baby birds sure are. They are tumbling from their nests like a hot pair of dice during and even hotter game of craps.

My son found the first fatality in the grass near the trunk of a spruce tree, where robins inhabit a nest above. Baby bird lay orange belly up -- dead on impact. We buried him in the garden so he can fertilize the soil. Rest in peace baby bird.
