Babies are coming!

Hi Everyone!
Another demo posted some photos of a birds nest on her blog and I loved the idea! I had taken some photos of Daddy bird sitting on a wooden bird hanging on our front porch and also on our flag. When I saw Beate's post I also grabbed the foot stool decided to take a photo of our little nest. Mama bird decided to build her little nest on top of the wreath on our front door. Not a very wise choice as this is the busiest place in the house! I am almost tempted to put a sign on the door to go around back!!!
Anyway, this little nest is perched upon our wreath with 5 little eggs! There were 6, but somehow one dropped off and broke on the porch. I cannot get a photo of Mom, as she flies away ever time the door is opened! But here is Pops, standing watch and the nest upon the wreath against our door. Can't wait til they hatch!!!!
Can you see the bird on the bird?????

How sweet is that! Your eggs look huge compared to the ones in "my" nest. Hugs!

How cute is that picture of the daddy bird on the wooden bird!

I'd worry about that big brown speckled egg. It doesn't look like the others. Brown Birds (I can't remember exactly what they are called), lay their eggs in another nest and let a host mother raise their bird. The baby brown birds eats all the food and the other baby birds starve.

I'd worry about that big brown speckled egg. It looks different from the rest. There is a bird that lays her eggs in another birds nest and when the baby hatches, it eats all the food and the other babies starve.
