I love House Finches,
they are fun to watch and they make really pretty music.
|This was my first nest this spring|
|If you look closely you will see all four babies.|
|This little girl was the last to leave the nest.|
|She spent a whole day longer than her nest mates |
testing her wings.
|While Mama and Daddy perched close by watching.|
|Before I had time to clean up the old nest, on the right,|
the next family was moving in right next door, on the left.
|What a nice and neat nest she made....|
|Until the wind blew it down....several times.|
|So this landlord got busy. A little double face tape....|
No more problems with the wind blowing it down.
|Two days ago there were 2 eggs.|
Today there were 4.
It was dark and I couldn't see the eggs on the screen when I was filming
|That third little nest that was in the making...|
and kept blowing down,
|I picked it up,|
|and taped it down as well!|
I wonder how many eggs this nest will hold?
