Oh, how cool! Our neighbors had a nest of robins in their eaves recently and we loved watching them grow.
We have a few nests of these little guys, or some that look similar. Ours are house sparrows or starlings. One fledgling is particular was nicknamed Mr. Grumpyfeathers. Man, what a scowl he wore!
I'm sure getting to see these little guys on the way to your studio was such a treat!
what a sweet place to build a home!
I'm just sorry they left so soon!
Your photos are fantastic! What wonderful little visitors.
That first picture is too adorable!
What a wonderful treat! They look like phoebes to me. We have some that nest in our sheep barn, and wild bird rehabber Suzie Gilbert identified them for me. Here's what she said:They're phoebes! I love them—they're little flycatchers, eat bugs on the wing, very beneficial to all. When they're adults they're brown with white chests, and they bob their tails up and down all the time. They're incredibly cute and jaunty. I wait for ours to return every year, and they are always on time. I don't know how they do it.You can see ours here:http://www.farmgirlfare.com/2010/04/book-review-flyaway-how-wild-bird.htmland here:http://www.farmgirlfare.com/2011/07/sunday-dose-of-cute-baby-bird-and-whole.html
Farmgirl: Thank you for identifying them for me!!!!! I was looking at swallows and swifts, but the adults had a funny shaped head which never quite matched up to my bird books, nor did the tail feathers. Our pictures are identical! Off to update my post!
