Another amazing act of nature. I was working in the yard and noticed a small bird coming out of a fence post. The fence is designed for the rail to go into the post but it is old and not joined together.
The birds, finches I think, entered the opening and created a nest in the hole.
The interesting part is that the hole used to gone straight, but something bored down into the post creating a pocket in which they created the nest. Not sure how that happened.
Finches are small, but baby finches are tiny! It makes you want to just pick them up and hold them. But, of course, that would not be good for the baby birds so I just look.
They do squeak and open their beaks when they are hungry. They will only be here a short time. I hope they enjoyed their stay!
It was just days ago that I posted the pictures of the baby Robins in the nest. They grew up so fast…and now they’re gone. It reminds me of how precious time is and how we need to stop and smell the roses more often. Enjoy the little things in life.
Nature can be so beautiful but it all changes so quickly. The same goes for our lives and children who grow up so fast. Stop and watch the children play. Don’t be in such a rush all the time. Everything is not so important that you can’t indulge the little ones once in a while. You will be surprised how much you gain from giving them so little.
Watching the baby birds grow. It is nice that the mother bird decided that a tree branch about four feet off the ground was the ideal place to make a nest. We noticed the nest from creation to almost ready to fly.
My four year old (or four and a half as he would say) enjoys checking them out on a daily basis.
It’s amazing how fast they grow! It looks like they are singing an opera.
In reality, they are saying, Feed me!!!!
We are happy they are here and will be sorry to see them go…
