Baby Birds

Photo Description
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.


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.

I think you're lucky. Please let them get on with it, If the parents get too bothered they'll leave and the young ones will die. you'll see them when they fledge.

Hope you don't have to get the gas tank filled before they've gone!

When I first found the nest, I was surprised that the adult was not sitting on them since they were so little. I only saw them this one time when I took the picture. Never did see any birds around the tank or going to the tank. It has been almost a week and I checked yesterday to see if they were still there and they were gone. I'm pretty sure they died. When I removed the nest, there were a lot of bugs in it.
