We Have Babies...

Hungry baby birds
Demanding little babies. As I was out in the backyard yesterday, I observed the harried mom make seemingly endless trips out for food and then back to the birdhouse to satisfy these seven hungry mouths. Honestly, I think she was constantly on the go for at least 2 hours. I know because the peeping that begins whenever she pokes her head in to the birdhouse is becoming so loud you can hear it all the way across the yard.

In the days since I took this picture, the birds' eyes have opened. We are all looking forward to flying lessons!

By the way, we are not totally sure what kind of birds these are, although Mathboy's best guess based on the quick glimpses we get of the mom is woodthrush.
