And babies make FIVE . . .
Sorry about the blurred photo but here is a photo of the newest babies -- soon to leave their nest . . . This saga has gone on for a year or so --- the original bird nest was built on this light near the ceiling of the front porch. First family had a budget and only had three babies . . . but a few families later they were having five babies at a time - - - DH decided with 5 babies that as the birds grew things would get cramped in the nest with the kids stretching their wings and such. . .
So one day I came home to find this wood shelf -- which DH assures me is a DECK -- around the bird nest so the kids won't fall out of the nest -- well I just took this photo to show how the new kids will soon be leaving the nest but were more than happy to pose for a final family photo before they all leave home --- looks as tho 2 of the kids like the "deck" . . . Won't be long before we are empty nesters again . . . am thinking we have had quite a few birds get their start on our porch -- even tho DH built bird houses and they are all over the yard in trees, on posts, and the like --- they must like the protection of the ceiling on the porch. So this photo is for everyone who asks if we are empty nesters once again --- haha. TFL and YOLO
