It's Official . . . We're Nesting!

I have decided it's time to tell everyone the big news! 

We have been blessed!

My family and I have been waiting for the perfect opportunity to announce that we are expecting three little ones this summer!



Please, if someone is in the Sandhills area, stop by and check on Mom for me.  I bet she fell off her chair and may be in shock laying on the Library floor.  I am hoping that she reads another paragraph before calling everyone or announcing the news on facebook. 

(In hindsight, maybe I should have warned her before I posted this...)

We are officially nesting and anticipating the arrival of three chicks!

About two weeks ago we noticed a few changes in the backyard.  A pair of birds had begun a nest in the cranny of an old hanging planter by our backdoor.  They resemble sparrows, but are a little smaller in size and have a wonderful song they trill outside my kitchen window.  The male has a wonderful red head of feathers. 

I think they are House Finches, but have also seen them on the Internet as red headed sparrows.  I have a picture of the father, but it wasn't easy to see him.  SO I found this photo from the site All About Birds.  I have to say that I am glad another "ginger" settled in, I was starting to feel like I was the only redhead in the neighborhood!


Last Friday morning, we noticed one speckled egg.  By that evening we had three!

We will keep you updated with our nesting experience and provide a lot of pictures.  We have officially gone to the birds.

Here are just a few photos:


one egg!
 
 
two eggs!
 
 
three eggs!
 
 
Proud Papa in my plum tree!  Hint, he's the splotch of red-  not the robin!
 
AND, to make this even more exciting...
 
WE FOUND ANOTHER NEST IN THE BLACKBERRY BUSH!  Here is a preview of this little gem.  Stay tuned for more updates from the bush . . .
