Babies quietly, patiently waiting for more breakfast! It's amazing to me how small the nest is. Under the three babies you can see in this shot, there are at least two more. It's no wonder baby birds so frequently fall out their nests.

Nursery in the Cedars
There are two cedar trees on the east side of our patio, frequent home to squirrel's, robin's, sparrow's, and finch's nests. This spring so far, there's a squirrel's nest in one of the cedars, and a robin's nest in the other one. The robins get very aggressive chasing the squirrels when they get too close to their nest. It's entertaining to watch the squirrels being run off by Mom and Pop Robin. We can see the nest from the patio, and even better from our master bathroom window. Yesterday I took these shots from the window, then cropped them so we could see the babies a little better. . .Mom feeding a worm to her brood.
