I grew up with animals and always had a great love for birds. My parents moved to Ontario and I had to sell all my birds :(
While we were there, I got a number of birds back again. 6 months later, my parents decided they were moving back to Nova Scotia, and I had to get rid of all my birds again! Well, I ran to the barn and cried and cried.
Unbeknown to me, my mother was outside listening to me. So after a talk with my dad and a lot of no's, they finally decided to allow me to keep the litter of chicks that was due to hatch on the day we were to leave. 1 gosling, 1 duckling and 5 chicks hatched. I got a tiny cardboard box and put them all in it. I had to carry the box in my hand the entire trip back. Being 9 people in a half ton truck, loaded to the gills with stuff, we took turns shifting from the cab to the back of the pickup. We crawled in over the clothes and stuff, trying to catch 40 winks. Even asleep, my dad remarked how tightly I held onto the small cardboard box.

These day old little ones are in their nest that is on our back porch light to the right of our door. That poor mama bird! We come and go out of that door so much. She flies off squawking at us each time!
Photo Description We have a propane gas tank and I needed to check and see how much gas we had left in the tank. When I lifted the lid, I found a nest of newly hatched baby birds. They are practically naked and haven't opened their eyes. They thought I was their mama. Maybe the gas tank is a safe place for a bird's nest. It would be difficult for a snake or cat to get to the baby birds. I hope so anyway. I'm hoping these four little ones grow up to be blue birds.
We have some baby birds in one of our bluebird houses that are not blue birds. I think they are tree swallows. I went by the nest yesterday, on my way to the garden and saw their little heads sticking out of the hole in the box. When I got close, they opened their mouths wide. It would have made a cute picture, but I did not have my camera. I went back with my camera hoping to get a picture. I tapped on the box. At that time, the mom and dad showed up and they dive bombed me. They actually chased me away from that area. Now, they have a fit when anyone goes anywhere near that birdhouse. I can feel the air when they fly by, they are so close. I guess getting a picture of those babies is out of the question. They are worse than mockingbirds protecting their nests. I hope they will forget I ever got close to that bird box.

I have a wreath that hangs on my front porch, one day I noticed there was a birds nest built in it. One by one, I had an egg laid in the nest until there were 5 eggs. 10 days later the eggs started to hatch until all 5 were born.
Every year, we have a new family of baby robins nested atop our front door, this year was a new surprise! We are not sure what type these sweet little baby birds are, anyone? We were thinking English Sparrows?
Mama bird built a nest in my utility room. One day, I heard chirping and found these little ones. They were hungry and anxiously awaiting mama bird to come back with food.
I happened to be in the right place at the right time to watch several baby birds leave their nest and bravely take flight. This little bird sought safety near my front door. I watched it for a long time but did not disturb it.
These babies were born in one of our bushes in the front yard. We just happen to check on them while they were hatching, so I ran and got my camera. It was fascinating to watch.
