We have babies!

We have birdie babies! They were actually born (hatched?) on Monday but it's taken me a couple of days to get decent pictures of them. It's hard to get the mama bird off the nest long enough to open the window and take a shot. She had no problem with me when they were just eggs but now that they are babies, she gets all puffy and starts squawking at me while dive bombing the window screen.

Here's mama smothering sitting on her babies.

And here are the babies. There are four of them but it's really hard to distinguish them, even in person. They are hideously ugly and basically just one big lumpy mass in the nest. I can't wait until they actually start getting cute and moving around a bit!

Lola has also discovered the nest now. Any time we let her upstairs, she immediately runs to the that window and jumps up on the sill to bark at the babies. It's too funny!
