This year we have a hummingbird nest at eye-level in our creek, so it was easy getting close. The nest is about the size of a golf ball--smaller than what appears on your screen--made of lichen woven with spider webs. It has been fun to watch.

These are Eastern Phoebe nestlings that fledged yesterday. This is the second year we've had them above our front door. Only one set is reared. I'm already having empty nest syndrome.

Here are the baby Barn Swallows living above our kitchen door. Mom takes them for practice flights around the well house. Soon they will be gone and she will begin another family, as she has for the past four years. Last year we had three sets. We also had a house wren nest between our screen and bedroom door, so it's been a a sweet spring.
