love is in the air

every spring, a little finchy-bird and her boy-toy nest in the candle lanterns on my patio. this year was no exception. about a month ago momma and pops began gathering "stuff" to fill the glass lantern and make a comfy nest. given the height of the lantern, I couldn't really see what was happening in the nest, but the activity level of both momma and pops had increased last week so I knew the time was near.



I was away for the long weekend and this morning I noticed momma was "feeding" the nest. so I stood up on the patio chair and sneaked a peek -- four little fuzzy-headed baby finches were getting a feed from momma. and on the patio up a story (and next door), I keep hearing what seems to be some hungry birdies. thank goodness my little nest are sleepy and quiet!

Birds fascinate me. I love when they build nests in the houses I put out on my porch.

those are going to be pretty cute when they grow up a bit. Silly how birds pick weird places to make nests.

I can't really see them. If I stand on the arms of the patio chair I'm high enough that I can hold the camera over the nest but I can't see in myself.

They're very chirpy today when mom feeds them -- it's super-cute!
