It was early-May when a mama bird began building this nest at the top of a brick column on our front porch. What a mess she has made! I'm glad that the eggs have finally hatched, and I am looking forward to the chicks leaving the nest, so we can clean up our front porch again. But it has been fun seeing the mama bird's attention to her babies, and witnessing the start of new life. I don't know how many are in the nest. It's very high. I've seen four heads at one time, but there may be more.
