Bird dog & nest

Yoli kept returning to my big Echium, sticking her nose in and wagging vigorously.  When I let her out, she'd run directly over to check out the bush.  I was surprised to look in and see a nest with 3 baby birds, maybe 200 mm above where her nose is in the photo.  Yoli loves to chase birds. I groaned, thinking "this is not going to end well". 

 

To my amazement, the nestlings haven't been abandoned, and Yoli hasn't made any effort to get at them (she could, easily). They are starting to get their pin feathers now.  So I think they may survive the puppy's interest.
