So egg-citing!! (that's corny, I know)
A mother finch built this nest on a decoration hanging on my front porch. We've had finches build nests on our porch before, and they lay their eggs one at a time, one per day. Most of the time, there have been three eggs total. This time, we looked out one day to find one egg. The next day, another, and so on - until she finally had FIVE eggs in her nest! She's probably sorry she built it there because we're always coming and going through that door and each time she flies away, only to go so far as the closest tree to keep watch. They don't look so tiny in the picture, but they're only about the size of a dime. Hopefully we'll have some baby finches soon!!
