The Nature Thread....a calm, soothing, restful place where fellow nature lovers can post pics or relate their happy encounters with the natural world. Mostly, it's an excuse for me to post pics of the two bird's nests at our place. I am terribly excited about it. And baby birds deserve their own thread.
The House Finches:
They took up residence in a hanging planter on our patio:
Yesterday evening when the mother had flown off, I took a quick look and it appears to be three(?) new hatchlings!
She picked her spot in a shrub directly in front of our bedroom window:
Began her build (took about 5 days):
And is patiently nesting:
Her egg/s should hatch any day now. We set a tripod up in the bedroom so we could document the whole process.
Will post updates as more hatchlings appear and we get to see feeding and fledging.
