What a find! That's just beautiful.

A house finch has built a nest in one of our junipers, close to the house. They're very secretive and we can't see it, but we know it's there.

Oh, I hope they survive and nothing bothers her nest until the little ones are all grown up!

RA, I thought they were beautiful too.

R, One can only hope.

That pink bill is the giveaway!

I love the field sparrow's song - like a ping-pong ball.
