summer is near,
chicks hone their flying skills
close to the nest
ps. My daughter turned 12 yesterday – she can stay in the nest as long as she wants 😉 Happy birthday my lovely girl.

A belated happy birthday to Tessa – one more year of peace before the onset of “Adolescent Adventure” 🙂
Lovely haiku, Gabe – looks as if the finches are thriving.

She’s in no hurry to grow up 🙂 – the finches are doing well – half a dozen bubs so far (summer is their breeding time – not spring like most birds around here)
