We inherited a bird's nest with freshly hatched chicks hanging in the planter outside our door. Over the course of the first week we occasionally peeked in at them as they grew. On the day our movers came these baby birds decided to leave the nest. We watched as first one then the other hopped (or was pushed by its mom) down to the pavement and stumbled confusedly off to safety as the mother and father flew nervously nearby. All while our things were being unloaded from the moving van and into our house.
