Breeding Season for Wild Birds

Egg is light blue

Mom is warming 6 eggs

Now is the breeding season for wild birds. At our balcony, a pair of Blue Rock Thrush (Isohiyodori in Japanese) is raising their six babies. They hatched on May 13 and are growing bigger and bigger day by day. Parent birds are frequently bring foods for them including earth worm, larva of butterfly or moth, gecko, centipede, and so on. Probably they will leave the nest around the beginning of next month. My wife and I are concerning about our Isohiyo loss. After that every time we hear the voice of Blue Rock Thrush on the premises of the condo, we will feel it’s maybe the voice of our family Isohiyo.
