New Peeps

We went out early this morning to check the garden to see how much it had grown since yesterday. Wearing our pj's and our coffee was still steaming in our mugs, Jilda veered off to check on the nesting Flossy. All of a sudden I heard a little squeal which could only mean a few things - either stepped on a copperhead snake or the new peeps had arrived. I was hoping for the latter.
I hustled over as quickly as I could without spilling my coffee and sure enough there was the head of a tiny little yellow peep sticking out from the mass of feather.
I sit my coffee down and ran inside to get my camera but before I got back, Flossy stood up in the nest and the peep scooted back to the safety of her mother's underside.
I'll keep my camera handy for the next few days and get a photo.
I hope you all have a great weekend.
