I'm so excited! Last week I discovered a bird's nest in my climbing roses next to my barn door...right at eye level! I scared the mama a few days ago when I slammed the door. Suddenly I felt a bird fly by my face and looked up to discover the "nursery!":) I quickly peeked in and saw 4 little eggs pale green eggs! I read that they are "on the nest" for about 2 weeks, so it must be close to hatching time. Every day I'm checking to see if they are peeking their little heads out! And what a good mom she is. I have never once seen her leave the nest since that day! I hope papa bird is delivering her "take out!":D Being a mom is tough work!!

I am so jealous of you Sandra, I have never seen baby birds before, can you take some pics for me to look at? Hope so.

I hope there will be enough light! I sure am going to try. I think the flash would frighten them or hurt there eyes, so we'll see how they come out! Thanks Heather!

Yes that would be lovely, hope they don't get frightened, suppose if there eyes are still closed it would be ok.

Congratulations! If it's not too disruptive, a photo would be nice.

I still have happy memories of the summer we had a series of mourning doves nesting on our balcony! I named the boldest nestling "Percher". I wonder whatever happened to the photo I had of Percher? What happy memories you've brought back to me with this post, Sandra! Thanks.
