Bird Update!

After a quick consult with one of our local birding experts I have been told that they look to be Canyon Towhees.

I have just checked the nest out and the birds have flown the coop!

A couple of days ago I went to snap a quick picture or two.

On the way to the nest, I notice mommy was in residence!
So a quick picture and I back off.

Don't make me come over and peck you!

I pop back the next day, and get a picture of the three amigos, getting quite full feathered and almost overflowing the nest.

I think they will be flying soon.
Excuse me, I am trying to sleep!

And then this morning, I go and look, and the nest is empty.

So, I guess this makes us empty nesters!

Birds fascinate me. Look at how intricately the nest is constructed, how the nestlings blend in with the nest, and how the mother can barely be seen when she is on the nest. What a nice lesson you have presented for us.
