Baby Birds

Without poking around I am not sure how many babies are in there, but I see at least three and another little blue egg.

For the past several weeks I have noticed a birds nest being built in the canes of the climbing rose over my front porch. Whenever we open the front door the mother flies off and chirps at us from the maple tree in the front yard.

I didn't want to disturb them so did not really try to look inside, but carefully stuck my finger in the nest and could feel several warm little eggs. As recently as last evening I could feel the eggs. This morning I took the camera out to try and take a picture of the eggs and when I peeked inside a little fuzz ball peeked back at me. I took a couple of photos but am not sure how many babies there are or even what kind of bird it is. Some sort of sparrow I think but we will keep an eye on them. It is the season for baby birds of all sorts.

How sweet, a nursery outside your own front door. You're going to have to use a different door during the gestation period!

La maison de Bill se transforme en maternité pour oiseaux, lol !
Pas facile de les prendre en photos sans que cela n'inquiète la mère...

The nest is just beneath the leading edge of the porch. It is a little above my head but I can reach up with the camera and look down into the nest. I will try to take a picture every day to see how quickly they grow. It will not be long and they will fly away.

Le nid est juste sous la pointe de la véranda. C'est un peu au-dessus de ma tête mais je peux atteindre avec la caméra et de regarder en bas dans la colonie. Je vais essayer de prendre une photo chaque jour afin de voir comment ils grandissent vite. Il ne sera pas longue et ils s'envolent.
