We have lots of large trees in our yard. It is the time of the year for birds to lay their nests and the baby birds to start hatching. When they start trying to fly is a dangerous time for the baby birds in a Beagle's yard. I have already saved 2 baby birds from Sadie and Pooh. Just now a baby bird wasn't so lucky. I wasn't quick enough. The Beagles are just being Beagles. It is in their nature to go after little animals in their yard. I was sad about this baby birdie though.
