They're here! Our baby wrens...


Baby wrens!, originally uploaded by juliecinci.

I feel like a proud mama. I keep watching through my window as the domestic partners bring worm bits to the babies. The nest is in our old BBQ so you have to lift the lid to see them. That makes mom and dad angry so we have to be very sly about trying to view them.

Of course, I was in such a hurry shooting the photos while the parents hunted for worms, that all seven pictures were blurry or missed the little beaks all together. This is the best of the bunch. Don't want to disturb them. Aren't they cute?

Yes, they're cute! I hope you can stage a re-shoot and get a good shot (without the mom and dad trying to peck out your eyeballs or anything....it really wouldn't be worth that). :-)

That is really cool! It will be cool seeing them grow up.

Oh my, so precious!!! How fun to be able to watch all the development, from building the nest to hatching and growing.

I'm so glad they are here and made it through all that spring cold. The parents did a good job!

Hasn't it been so wondeful watching this entire process from beginning until now? You've watched the creation of an entire little family and its home in a very short period of time.

Oh so sweet! Of course, I am jealous because our Mourning Dove abandoned her eggs last Monday... I guess she was fed up with the cold weather since it actually snowed that day.
