Baby birds


Before we left for our little trip, the father of one of our Cub Scouts pointed out that there was something in the nest in our wreath. I peeked in, and sure enough, there was something there. An oddly pulsating mass of flesh and fuzz. I knew they were baby birds, but they looked gross!

Fast forward to yesterday. They actually look like cute little birdies now, instead of alien somethings. Feel free to ignore the poop. I try to. Luckily I got the wreath secondhand for next to nothing, so it will be hitting the trash at the end of the year!

  1. I am glad they are cute little birdies and no longer alien 'somethings!' Haha...
    I am sure that it is hard to ignore the poop- bummer about that cute wreath! Oh well, what a wonderful little nest for those little guys. :)

  3. Wow, so the bird you scared away the one day, decided it was a good nesting spot!

    Our deck looks similar to that with all the poop. We had to move BigDumbDog's food underneath the deck to a tarp covered enclosure to put a stop to the poop. Now we have to pressure wash and treat the deck again.

  5. I so love that you have baby birds on your door - see, maybe that was why I thought you lived in an old cottage in the country! LOL!

  6. How fun to watch the baby birds! You even have a disposable "bird house!" :)

  7. You are the third person I've known to have a bird nest in their door wreath. What a fun little blessing to watch. Just don't slam the door. hehe

  8. Did you ever figure out what kind they were? We were able to see black capped chickadees and cardinal babies in our yard this spring. Not in the door, though!

    And that is funny you think they are cuter when they are bigger. For some reason I find the all beaks and eyeballs look rather charming!

  9. Nettie, we never figured out what they were because they moved out within a week of this post.

    I thought the little beaks and eyeballs were cute, too. They just looked creepy when their heads were all down and they were just an irregularly breathing mass of bald bird. As soon as I saw their heads I was okay. :)
