Our Babies

Ok, so not really our babies...but we really do get kind of protective of the little house finches that make their home here. There were 4 babies this time and they seemed to have very good parents. ;) We just love watching the little birds. It's so neat to see the parents making the nest and guarding it from other birds, then watching over the eggs and finally feeding their hungry little ones until they are ready to head out on their own. All four left the nest today. We're going to miss the excited chirping of baby birds getting fed. Last year we had another family move in a little later in spring. We'll have to watch and see if that happens this year too.

How neat! I wish we had a little bird family to observe. Something tells me the cat probably is a deterrent to that happening here.
