outside my office window. They really do sound so sad. They aren’t- or shouldn’t be as they are building nests for the little ones. They should be happy at the imminent blessed events. We had one couple last year that had two different sets of babies. Made a mess on my porch for sure with all the baby poop. The interesting thing was that the mother sat as still as a statue for a month or more while the babies were in the shell. I was amazed at her stamina. And no cramped limbs, to boot! At least I didn’t hear her complain.
