Bird babies!

This morning I was having some tea and looking out the bay window in our breakfast nook and noticed some bird activity. You see, we had some birds move into one of our bird houses. They, in turn, had a family of birds, but I haven't been able to identify them yet.

Usually the mom does a quick in and a quick out of the bird house. She's a typical busy mommy, she has things to do you know. So I haven't been able to see what kind of bird she is. Last year we had a family of chickadees. This year?

Well today I got a real treat. I saw a bird sitting in the hole of the house. I knew it wasn't the mom, she never sits still. I grabbed the camera and went in the back yard. You wouldn't believe how close I got to the baby. I could have reached out and touched it, no joke. Mommy bird was up in the branches cussing me out. I was good, I didn't touch it. But I wanted to! It was so freakin' cute!

I got some great photos. Take a look. If anyone can identify them, please let me know!

  1. My husband (bird geek) thinks it's a tufted titmouse. He needs a side picture to tell better. :) Try to get one and not get yourself attacked!
