Final Bird Update

All of the baby birds have left the nest; one left on Thursday, five left on Friday, and the remaining four left on Saturday. It was super exciting to see each one of them wander to the edge of the nest and build up enough courage to fly for the first time. All ten of them initially flew to the tree in our front yard, but they've since scattered. And I was able to find out what happened to the eleventh egg: it just never hatched (I'm assuming that it never even fertilized to begin with). Anyway, I wanted to be able to show you guys how small the eggs were (it's sitting next to a dime):
