Description

Spring 2008 – I noticed a tiny nest on a small crescent moon wind chime that hung about a foot outside my family room window. That spring, and for the next 2 years, we were able to closely watch everything from roosting to fledgling of 3 sets of babies. Fascinating and at times heartbreaking as not all lived. This is the first pair.

      Thanks. It was a joy to watch these little birds. The nest was used for three years in a row – I think it was the same mama who returned, did some upgrading each year and had new babies.
