Nest Update

The Dark-eyed Junco babies are getting very big. They fill out the nest, and look at those feathers. Are they not beautiful? We only check in on these nestlings once a day, and we are relieved that they really seem to be healthy and doing so well.
Roger took a peek behind the chickenwire and straw to snap this pic. In just a few days these birds will wander away from the nest, and that will be the last time we'll recognize them. They'll probably show up at the feeder someday, but we'll never know.
This guy we recognize whenever he shows up. Look at that stretch. Doesn't that look like a bunny that is incredibly relaxed and comfy here? It must feel so fine to have a quiet safe moment, and all that seed. Yum. Life is good.

Have a great weekend, friends.
