We had baby birds born on our screened porch...

... which was NOT the ideal place for a nest, but that's where the silly parents built it.

After driving the dog crazy for weeks of nest building... and sneaking in through the doggie flap Carl installed in the screen door... the parents tended their eggs without bothering us too much.

But, once the babies hatched, we had several days of random pooping, learning to fly, and Weimaraner torturing to contend with. We counted five babies, each learning to fly at a different pace. They've all left the nest now, only a few days of flight school. Mom and Dad seem to be vacationing in Europe, and taking a Caribbean cruise since the kids left home... we haven't seen them.

Aren't they adorable?

This is Bobhead.

Fuzzhead and Emily.

They left us lots of poop to clean up. Sigh. Fun never comes free, does it?
