Baby Birds!


A few weeks ago I found a delightful little garden surprise. There was a wren's nest built in the top of the weed eater in my shed, along with five little speckled eggs! After watching and waiting (almost as attentively as the mother) I finally heard the little cheep-cheep of the babies last week. Here is a picture of the babies on the day that they hatched.


All head with big closed eyes and wide beaks! A funny way to start out :)

After about a week, they are growing quickly, already growing little feathers and looking around. They are keeping mom busy with their constant demands for food!


 What fun to watch this amazing process! Now I just have to wait until they learn to fly so DH can weed eat the yard again, lol :)
