Every year I put a silk arrangement on the porch wall; either a basket or a wreath. Every year, a bird builds a nest on the arrangement. Most years, the end result is broken eggs or an abandoned nest. But not this year. There are at least four itty-bitty fuzzy babies in that nest. I am such a proud grandmama!! We hope it isn't too cold for the babies to survive; since we have had hard freezes for the last three nights.
Note: The nest was built by the birds; I didn't put it in the arrangement. I will photograph them as often as possible, but I have to take the arrangement off the wall. It is a cornucopia-type basket and I must have someone hold it for me, and that might not always be possible. I don't know what kind of birds they are because I have not seen the mother yet. I will try to keep you posted about them as they grow.
