The eggs that were laid in the nest made in Isla's hanging bike helmet outside hatched a while ago. We left the babies alone, and it looks like they grew up enough to fly. Our front door was open and two flew right inside! Luckily Grandpa Tapa was near, so we enlisted his help with freeing our bird friends. I imagined he would get a broom to shoo them outside or something but instead he calmly went up to first one then the other. He talked to them and then gently cupped one at a time in his big hands. The girls got to see each one up close for just a split second before they burst out of Tapa's hands into their sky home. Isla even pet one!
