It Happened Again - Baby Birds in the Tent

I stepped into the tent on Sunday and a suspicious finch flew out, having obviously been perched inside. I looked for a new nest in the vent tubes but didn't see anything. Then, as I turned around I noticed it, tucked up in the rolled up side of the tent.

The babies were hard to get a shot of. They just wanted to hide

Until we gave a little whistle. Then they'd pop their heads up, mouths open.

I think we'll need to relocate them by next Sunday because we have plans to use the tent to entertain for Mother's Day. I don't think they would fare well with their own mother gone for a several hours. Luckily we've read all about how to move birds nests. We'll post about it when we do it.

About this time last year

  1. Awe little cuties! They're probably well protected from cats and hawks in there. Smart bird mom.
