Saturday Critters ~ 73 ~

I am enjoying my little ones, although they still sleep a lot!!

 We found the eggs on April 22nd,

here they are on May 4th...
I do believe this is the day they hatched.

And here they are yesterday, May 8th.
It's only been 4 days and they have doubled in size,

and their little eyes are open.

Since the wreath/nest is on my front door, I wait till mom flys off, 
looking for food and I am able to take these
images from inside, without upsetting her.
I open the front door, ever so slightly and snap quickly.
This will work for a few days, until they get bigger.

It's hard to believe that in 2 weeks,
they will be gone!!

  2. Things like this never fail to delight and amaze me. What kind of birds? I forget. Early morning bird song is one of my favorite things in the universe.

  8. I love watching the whole process. You're so lucky to see it so closely. A few years ago, robins made a nest on my mother's nursing home patio. We watched the eggs, hatchlings, and finally fledglings through the entire cycle. Don't you just love how they hold their mouths open for the food to be dropped in? I love watching this through your gorgeous photos!

  12. Oh joyous is right. I have them in one tree every year. Momma teaches them to fly so last year looked out window.
    The weak one was having a hard time to walk. Momma bird went over and pushed her a bit . Birds and gritters are so motherly . Natural instincts. Happy Saturday.

    Blessings and hugs for a wonderful day tomorrow~

  30. It is so fun to watch them grow isn't it, what great pictures you captured. We have had them build nests in our hanging plants on the front porch 2 years in a row, made it fun to try and water the plants without upsetting them but I enjoyed seeing them grow

  38. Oh gosh I'm so glad I backtracked even more... I'd have missed your sweet Lorelei, herbs, knitting and these gorgeous little babies!! and in your wreath - I believe that, if your door had been open, Mumma bird would've built her nest inside. What a gorgeous experience and how pretty are those eggs too.
    Oh the lovely little mouths all wide open. A real treat for us all, thanks Debbie :D)
