What a fun evening we had right here on our front porch! For the past week, we have been waiting for the eggs to hatch. They finally did TODAY.
You see the bird decided to make nest right in one of my mom’s welcome home signs hahaha. Everytime I would walk out on the porch the mommy bird would dart out right in front of me. Scared me every time.
She would usually sit atop the roof and wait for the path to clear and then finally fly into the nest.
The girls were so amazed and intrigued by the little birdies birth. We really had a neat experience talking them through of what they just witnessed. It seemed like every 5 or 10 minutes they wanted to check in on how they were doing. The mommy bird would keep going to get food and bringing it back to the 5 babies and the girls would just crack up when the bird would drop the food into the birdies mouths.
Makes you appreciate nature even more!
AWW that’s wonderful – We had a nest – actually still do, the first mommy has already come, had her 3 babies and gone, now another mommy has taken over and she’s got 4 – it’s weird that we had 2 sets of mommies in one nest but the kids LOVE that it’s low enough we can take peaks – though it’s under the deck so I cant get in there for a picture 🙁
Awww How cool!

What a wonderful experience. And your photos are National Geographic worthy! You brought me back to such a beautiful memory that I had as a child… when my friend and neighbor had a bird’s nest in a front yard bush. Her mom supervised (like you!) as we watched those little babies go from eggs to little fliers! As I think back, that experience made me appreciate nature and all its wonders. I am so happy for all of you to have had this simple, yet magnificent experience! Again… LOVE the photos!

Aww, that is so sweet. My mom gets a dove nest in her wreath by the front door every year since I can remember. They must feel comfortable with you — that’s a neat thing! 🙂
