Bird Nests

We have a bluebird box in our backyard. I know these pictures aren't that great but I tried! I was standing on a block on my tiptoes with my camera up in the air trying to aim it right. The things we do...

The first three photos are of baby bluebirds:





This is a little better. These were taken the beginning of April. They are Carolina Wrens that nested in our shed. They nest there every year. There were 5 babies and they must have fledged when we were on vacation.


A couple of days ago The Latin King told me that there was a bird that had gotten into the basement. It was through the window I have been keeping open to the greenhouse. When I went to look in the greenhouse, sure enough! there was a nest in amongst my carrots. More Carolina Wrens. Fortunately, there were no eggs in there yet so I removed the nest and harvested the carrots. Our house is now closed up and the AC units are running. Summer is upon us.

Can't wait to see what other birds come visit this year!

We just found a bird nest in our garage last week. We were leaving our garage door open during the day and so they got in. We didnt find any eggs though. Thanks for sharing!
