Of course I had to go see them for myself. Their mother had built their nest in a snowball bush in the backyard. This bush is right next to the patio where we frequently sit during the afternoons. I am always amazed at how close to humans some birds will build their nests. I had to take my own picture and I caught this hungry looking baby.
..."Welcome, sweet bird!" I fondly cried,
No danger need'st thou fear,
Secure with me thou may'st abide,
Till warmer suns appear.
