Sweet Little Nest

No, we didn't get more snow. This picture was taken April 4th and I believe it's the same birds that have built a nest in a little evergreen in front of our neighbor's house. I've noticed that every time I get a certain distance from the tree a little bird flies out. Last night when we were walking my husband peeked into the tree and there was a tiny nest, not any bigger than a teacup. He being taller than I could see several tiny little blue eggs. I had to take his word for it and I don't want to bother the little adult bird again. God bless you, Diane

That's neat, Diane... Do you know what kind of birds you have??? That one looks like a finch (House or Purple)... BUT--since the picture is dark, I can't really tell.

Congrats on having a nest in the evergreen not far from you. Keep us posted!!!!

Hugs,
Betsy

Hmmmm... small like a teacup... in an evergreen. I am betting maybe a chipping sparrow (which can have pale blue eggs) instead of house finches? :c) Sweet!
