New Bird Family!!!

Last year I blogged about a mommy house finch who made a beautiful nest in my hanging flower basket last May. She laid 5 eggs, had 4 hatchings and it was a wonderful experience for us. (see my Bird Watching Label here for all the pics!).

I am happy to report, she is back! She made a new nest in my hanging basket that my daughter purchased for me for Easter. (see photo above)

What a beautiful nest! We noticed on Sunday that she laid a tiny little egg. Every day since Sunday, she has laid another egg. As of today (Thursday) there are 5 tiny little eggs. They are the size of a malted mill ball egg (candy egg). Right now, she is being pretty protective of her nest so after I saw her 'jet' out to get herself a meal, I took the basket down and got a picture :)

As time goes on, I hope to blog this experience too! I hope you will follow along!
