Nest Full of Hungry Baby Birds

Just back from the mountain house for a long 4th of July weekend. 31 family/friends gathered on Nana and Granpa's hill (only 5 at our house...thank goodness), and a great time was had by all (I think?).

These little fellows were our alarm clock. Mother bird built this nest a while back (during a painting and staining session at the house) and we just let her go. Unfortunately, we had a rainy spring and she made the nest of mud and moss. They look as if they're ready to leave the nest, and once they're gone we'll have to remove the mud and mess easy task from the boxing, but not so from the cedar siding.

Until then, joyful voices and hungry heads peak out from the messy, too small, nest.
