Cheeping Nest

We’ve got babies!

Last night I was taking the garbage out, and I heard a sound I had heard a few times before. Rapid, but soft cheeping. When I passed by one of our bushes, the noise stopped. I had heard this sound a couple times, but was never able to pinpoint

Investigating I was able to peak into part of the bush, and was able to spot the nest. Just above the edge of the nest I could see two beaks poking up vertically, and perfectly still. Baby birds, most likely robins I would say.

Pretty cool. We were going to trim back that bush severely a few weekends ago, and decided to postpone it until the fall so we could see it bloom. In retrospect that was a good thing. Now we need to wait until the young’uns have flown the coop. Hopefully they will vacate by the fall.
