We Have Baby Birds !


We have baby birds on the front door of our house. When Jack and I took off last week for Atlanta we had two blue eggs in the nest. I thought that they were purple finch eggs but now that the eggs have hatched I can tell that they are little baby house sparrows. I know it is hard to see. In the last photo you can see the eye of one of the baby sparrows. The wreath on the back door is getting some bird activity too. Today I saw purple finches flying in and out of the wreath. I think that they are trying to decide if they want to build a nest in the wreath. Last year the purple finches used this wreath and we had four baby purple finches in May. Maybe they will do the same thing this year. All I've got to say is that I need to be careful now and not slam the house doors.
On May 3rd we noticed that our baby birds in the nest in the wreath had flown away. This all happened within a matter of days!

I love you pictures, but I'm still so sad because of my bird story on my blog.
