spring has sprung! a pair of house finches (i think they are house finches, based on a little google research) have nested in our hanging pansy plant, and i discovered their nest on accident. since then i have been discreetly and carefully photographing it, and the baby birds have officially hatched! right now they look like aliens, but everyday they get bigger and bigger!
getting to photograph these birds is easily one of the coolest things! they are amazing. i will post more photos soon- i try to wait awhile in between photographing to let them grow/not freak the mama and papa out!
