Every spring and summer, we have a bunch of baby birds in the nest that is on my back deck. I have saved many of their lives over the past few years. They are so cute and mommy and daddy do not bother me anymore. They used to swoop down at my head. Very scary I tell you.

 Anyways...the first bach of babies hatched a few weeks ago. Today, they looked really big just sitting up there so I pulled the table closer to the nest and grabbed my camera. I took two pics and then  just as I was about to take the third pic, they all flew right at my head. They all flew good and looked pretty big so I am ok about them flying away. I would be really upset if they clearly couldn't fly. I would blame myself for their premature nest leaving.

 Aren't they cute??  Now it is time for mommy to lay some more eggs. We go thru at least three batches every year.
