nest with 2 babies

steviedonApril 24, 2013

An Anna's mom built her nest in a potted tree by my door, both eggs hatched and babies grew fast. at one point, one of the babies was pushed or fell out of the nest, and my gardener noticed it and put the baby back, and both continued to grow. This is my last picture of them, they flew away the very next day, but I'm certain one of the juveniles was hanging around and tentatively flying and tasting plants close to the nest that first day.
