Saturday Critters ~ 131 ~

If you frequent here, you may remember that this wreath was home for some babies birds.
In early Spring, on my front door, those babies have fledged.
I washed the wreath, washed the front door and moved the wreath to the left of the door,
and hung it right on the house.

But momma came back...

and on May 25th I saw this, she was at it again.

By May 30th the nest was complete and two eggs had appeared.

On June 1st there were three.

I checked the nest every day and on June 12th there were two babies,

and on June 13th, we welcomed the third.

On June 14th they started doing this,

and on June 15th all three were awake and looking for food.

When I checked them on June 16th, everyone was sleeping...

and here's how they looked yesterday, June 17th.
They are already so much bigger and they are opening their eyes now.

Stay tuned, I will continue to follow them until the fly the coop!

Sharing today's images with

  9. It's so amazing, isn't it to watch mother nature in all her glory. I'm so pleased you're sharing with us, Debbie. You're a good "watcher" of the babies. :)


  10. Mama seems entirely too "busy" if you know what I'm sayin'! :-) Glad the youngsters are doing well. I'm sure you'll be happy when they've gone off to college, though!

  11. They sure are ugly without feathers...

  12. That is so cool!! How amazing Debbie that the Momma bird likes that wreath. I look forward to watching them feather out and fly from the nest. Great pictures.

  13. Wow..thanks for snapping photos and keeping it up to date. So nice to have birdsome come nesting

  17. Was Momma in the background sounding the alarm? Keep us posted.
