How wonderful to see!
And it was certainly a surprise!
Oh wow! Great minds really do think alike! What are the chances of that? Lovely photos
A bizarre coincidence indeed, but a lovely one. Was yours more obvious? Ours was on the ‘lychgate’ at the side of our sheds, and once I knew it was there you can see it from ground level, and the beaks peaking out at times. I think these were very new – they were fast asleep when I first saw them. You have captured yours brilliantly. Bill and Ben?
Mine are in the cherry tree right next to my retractable washing line. The parents are quite used to me though and very tame. The little heads pop up whenever I get my washing line out. I am worried about when they come out of the nest though, next door’s cat is always on the prowl.
We have a number of cats that walk through our garden, but the only fatalities we find are courtesy of sparrowhawks and the like – but perhaps they take the corpses home…
So sweet! I discovered a California Towhee nest in my New Zealand tea tree just as I was cutting the dead foliage back. Needless to say, I backed off!
We know many birds nest in the garden but we don’t often see where the nests are
What wonderful sweetness of birds, I love them !!! Cathy how lucky to have this nest at hand to see them and see how they grow. Your garden holds treasures like this !! The photos are magnificent. Cathy thanks so much for showing it off. Very affectionate greetings from Margarita.
And I would not have seen it if I hadn’t been trimming the fatsia
Aaaaaaw- that sight brings on the warm fuzzies. What a brilliant post title Cathy 😄
I was well-chuffed to see it, and the title jumped ino my head immediately as they were asleep when I first saw them
Sweet. I have Northern Cardinals nesting at the top of an arbor. I can’t wait to see those little bills sticking out.
