That’s My Baby


They arrived back late from winter vacationto nest at last year’s Vineyard location.

Between them, they share a bondwith the nest pole at Oyster Pond.

Before neighbors had a chance to fear,the birds began doing what they did last year.

By early May, she had passed spring’s testby laying three eggs in the nest.

In mid-June I had my first sightingof a little head in dim morning lighting.

No ifs, ands, buts, or maybes…this is truly one of her babies.
