It Looks Like We're Going to be Empty Nesters Soon

I've been seeing two birds in one of my birdhouses for weeks and wondered how the babies were doing.  I hadn't ever seen them, but I could see a lot of nesting material in the birdhouse.  Today I was outside taking pictures of my front yard and I got to see the babies!





  

 The mother (or maybe the father?) came back several times with food for them.  Boy was there a lot of squawking every time the food was getting close!

***You can click on any of the pictures to enlarge them.  Please excuse my very elementary photography skills!  :)
 




















What a fun surprise this morning!  Good thing I had my trusty helper!  :) 

Isn't it fitting that I received this gift from my good blogging friend Martina @ Northern Nesting yesterday?  I was the winner of her recent giveaway.  I love her blog and love this gift!   Thank you Martina!




Thanks so much for coming by!

  1. Hi Pam,

    The birds are just darling and your dog is so sweet looking.
    I love your wire cloche. I just decorated one and posted it on my blog. I used fresh flowers and it looks really nice.

  6. Liked your bird post. So sweet with their little heads poking out for their dinner. We had four baby mocking birds to fly away this week. Their nest was by the window so I got a few peeks every day of them when they were being fed. I had wrens earlier in the spring. I did several posts on their story. I almost threw them away!

  12. Sweet and delightful to see the little one's head popping out and how the parent takes care of their baby. Wonder if there is more than one? Thanks for sharing and the pictures are fine!

  20. This is the first time I've commented on your blog and I do have to say that your pictures of the momma and baby birdies are awesome! All things birdies are one of my fave things. We get nests in the oddest places in our yard - now I want to get them a real bird house like yours. Thanks for sharing such sweet pictures!
