I checked my birdhouse this morning and one side has three chicks!!  Unfortunately I spooked the mom....but I know she'll be back.  The other side is unfertilized...as last year.  But at least we have three!!  I try not to bother them, but I just love seeing new birth.....

I was just getting ready to come on and post that I have babies. A bird made it's nest over my garage light (though there was a perfectly nice birdhouse not too far away) and when I went by yesterday I saw the babies. They are absolutely beautiful. It is such a wonderful sight to watch the mother interact with them in real life (not tv).

Congratulations.....LOL.....  I'm such a suker for nature.  I don't have that much knowledge aboiut species or their habits...but I just love in the Spring when I can actually see the nests and the chicks.  I know they'll soon be gone...but they have a safe, dry place for now...
