Baby Birds

We have a pair of birds that spend hours pecking at the window over our fireplace. Mostly it is the male and he is relentless. We tried taping pictures of owls to the window to deter him but have come to realize that he will be with us for awhile.

I noticed him sitting on the bush outside the window and then he disappeared inside. It dawned on me that they are likely nesting in there. I'm a little worried because it is a small bush and it is low to the ground but I figure they know what they are doing right?

Yesterday I decided to confirm my suspicion about the nest so I peaked in and sure enough there is a nest. Not only is there a nest but there are 2 baby birds in the nest.

Here is the first shot of the birds. I don't know how old they are but they are quite small and don't have much in the way of feathers. I should've take the pictures last night when they were awake and looking more like birds because today they were curled up sleeping and aren't quite as cute.

Hopefully I can get some more pictures as they grow.

  1. awww so adorable. We found a robin's egg the other day, I wonder if we put it in your nest if they will raise it as their own? LOL
