Birds in My Belfry
OK, not really in my belfry, just on the rafter on my rear deck.
I've always enjoyed watching little birds hatch and grow. This year I received a special gift when a bird built a nest and laid eggs under my deck's roof. Three little things. I could have reached up and touched them if I wanted. Instead I held my camera 3 feet from them and took some pictures to share.
I was surprised how quickly they grew. It seems they went for hatching to flying in about 3 weeks. The nest was right above where I kept my gas grill. I moved the grill so when I grilled I wouldn't over heat the chicks and kill them. Fortunately, they all grew to be able to fly away.
