Hatching Mockingbird Caught on Tape!

A mockingbird made a nest in a bush in our backyard a few weeks ago. About a week and a half ago we noticed four small, blue & brown eggs in the nest. Today my wife & kids just happened to be outside looking at the nest when one of the eggs started to hatch!

My wife ran for her phone and snapped this quick video to share with everyone.

We look forward to updating you on their progress over the next few weeks!

    This is so cool–I’ve never seen a baby bird actually hatch! I’m going to share this on my PreschoolPowolPackets Facebook page right now!!

      Thank you very much! It was a really neat experience and the next day we were able to watch a second egg hatch. I’m going to check out your site now!
