It’s that time of year when the birds, bugs, and some animals are having babies. But why now? Why are so many creatures being born at the same time? Spring is the best time for babies to enter the world. The birds and bugs lay their eggs based on the temperature and what is happening in the weather. The weather is warmer and drier. Birds try to time when their eggs hatch, so their hatchlings will have lots of baby and juvenile insects to eat. Did you know that most birds come back to use the same nest most years? What baby animals and birds have you seen? I've seen the baby golden eagles hatching now in Sisters on the golden eagle cam.
