This post is another continuation of the birds that took up residence on my front porch (click here or here for previous posts). They are really amazing to observe, and also how fast they are growing. I still have not been able to get a good photo of their elusive mother...the minute I step on the porch she flees. The nest is visible outside a window and sometimes all it takes is for me to approach the window for her to flee. The bottom photo is one I took of her in the nest feeding her chicks early this morning. The photo was taken from a distance and through an un-washed window.
