springtime babies


this year i have left my christmas wreath on our door longer than normal b/c it has become a home. when i went to take it off quite a while ago i noticed some of our rosemary clippings from when we pruned had 'somehow' gotten lodged in our wreath... we as you can see a little bird(probably a wren) made a nest... i left it alone but figured the bird would know better than to actually lay eggs in that nest since it gets jolted a swung about from time to time... well it looks like this bird was daring enough to put it's little ones on our front door. imagine my surprise when i informed a friend that i didn't think it was actually going to have eggs in it--then peeked in and saw this scene!
i think these tiny birds are actually quite scary w/ their giant eyes... but so amazing!

Aw, they must have known that a lover of God's creation lives there.

Oh my goodness! That's really incredible! I wonder how long they'll stay in the little nest. Very cool...

Baby birds are the best!!! Their ginormous eyes and beaks do make them look a bit alien, huh. My mom has a momma bird on a next outside her house and I'm really hoping the babies will still be there when I next visit. So fun!

Jane, My fall/winter flowers are still up because a little mama bird has chosen to make my doorway her home. This is the second year this has happened... don't worry the babies get really cute really fast and don't look quite so creepy. I do think that it's funny when they are brand new and their little heads just bob around with their beaks open wide waiting for some food.
Thanks for sharing! Carlie
