New Babies of a Different Sort

I usually talk about my angelfish breeding on this blog, but we've had a birth of another sort at our house.

On our side door, I have a grapevine wreath with purple silk flowers. Though I have noticed birds around since the weather has become warmer, I didn't think anything more was afoot... Until we heard the tiny calls of newborn birds.

It turns out, a nest was built at the top of the wreath. Inside are these down-covered babies:

Needless to say, we've taken to using another door so the babies, parents and nest are given the privacy they need.
