Bird Watching

We have been doing some bird watching at my house.  We have a mountain laurel tree right outside our bathroom window.  It must be the perfect place for a nest because it seems like we have a bird nest there every year.  We usually get doves, but this year we have a robin.

We have been watching for the eggs to hatch for a couple of weeks now and finally this week they hatched.

How cute are these little guys?  I think they are hungry. It has been so fascinating to watch the momma and daddy bird tending to the babies.  I think I check the window at least 15 times a day.

It's hard to tell from the photo, but there are 3-4 baby birds.  I have seen 3, but Harper swears there are 4 of them.  I think they are used to us glaring at them now because it doesn't seem to bother them any more.  Hopefully I will be able to get some shots of them as they get bigger.

How lovely to be able to see right into the nest and watch the comings and goings. The blue of the eggs is so pretty. We have a robin nesting in a bush (but out of sight) and a pair of great tits in our bird box which we love to watch. We keep meaning to install a small camera in the box but always forget and leave it too late. I look forward to more photos.

Perfect location for bird watching! How lucky for you guys. I don't think there is anything cuter than little baby birds!!
