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!
