Baby Birdie Mama Drama

Notice anything new at our house?


Look carefully. One of these windows is not like the others. See it now?

We have a bird's nest in our window! At first I was horrified when I rolled up last week to discover a pile of crap on the upstairs window ledge. But upon further inspection, I saw it was a tiny bird's nest, perfectly round and perched precariously on the narrow ledge. It was so beautiful that I didn't have the heart to knock it off and destroy it.

It sat empty all weekend and I was sure the birds had upgraded to a birdie condo in some nearby bush. But lo and behold, this morning Birdie Mama was sitting on her nest, all plump and smug like she owned the joint.


If you look closely you can kind of see her head above the nest. I keep trying to sneak up on her from inside the house but no dice. She must already be a mama cuz she's obviously got eyes in the back of her head!

There are four little blue eggs in the nest! So cute!


I wonder how long it will take them to hatch? And how the heck will four baby birds fit in that teeny, tiny nest?

To Be Continued....

Wow, that's really cool! We get a family of cardinals every year that nest on one of our fence posts. I felt so bad when one of the neighborhood cats knocked the full nest of eggs to the ground last year!

Ooh I know, I know! :)

A bird built a nest on our balcony and the eggs are in the next for 2 weeks and the babies are there for another 2. I've been documenting ours and will be putting it on the blog soon.

RIght now the babies are 9 days old. SO CUTE.

How cute! Our finches have had babies twice. Once a set of two and another time a set of three. They are so ridiculously ugly when they first hatch but once they get some feathers they're darn cute!
