We have hatchlings!!!

Last week I posted a photo of momma finch's nest that she made in my hanging flower basket that had 5 eggs. She eventually had 6 eggs. We now have 2 hatchlings (baby birds) and 1 egg left.

Last night a nasty squirrel got into the nest and carried off 3 eggs! I was so dang angry! blah!

So far, the 2 babies seem to be doing well. When momma leaves the nest to get food, daddy finch comes and stays with them.

I will post another picture in a few days.

Squirrels were cute until they stole Momma's eggs! The photo is beautiful.
