The finches are finally here!



The nest is in a wreath and was discovered over spring break. The babies hatched on Friday.

This is so beautiful Manisha! Tiny bird producing tiny babies. How many young 'uns are there?

Shilpa, I think there are 3.

That is so precious!!!! I am guilty of disturbing a nest in the making about 2 months back. :(

Reena, it happens. Next time though you could call your local wildlife society and ask them what you could do.

The baby finches are now long gone. They will find a mate and make their own nests soon!

Anjali, they were so small initially. When they grew wings they filled up the nest! And I was wrong about how many there were. There were only 2.
