tiny nests

My in laws have a wonderful porch with rocking chairs and hanging baskets. It's a lovely place to sit and enjoy the outside.
Two little momma birds have built nests in the hanging baskets.

One has three little eggs~

And the other has five~
It's hard to tell in the photos just how little the nests are. I'd say they're about five inches across at most, so you can imagine how tiny the eggs are.  I think the momma birds are little finches.

I'm linking up with a few friday link ups. The theme at crazy days is critters. I figured my little eggs count as future critters, right?

  2. Love porches!! Any shape. Any size. I'm a little surprised the mama bird lets you sit on the porch while she's watching over her 'critters!' :) Have a great weekend, Deb!!

  8. That porch is lovely. I haven't had any bird nests in my yard in over a year. We used to have a door thingie that they'd nest in but it took over our display so we took it down. I miss it.
