Welcomed Guests

When we moved into the house 6 years ago, the first thing we noticed was that there was a birds nest nestled in a corner of our house. Since that very first spring/summer here we have had either a dove take over the nest or a robin. This year was the robins turn. This was the first year we have ever seen baby birds though. We feel so lucky! I believe there are about 4 or 5 little babies but I am not sure. Its hard to count or even take a good picture because of where they are.

I am really surprised that the mommy would choose to make her nest at this house. With all the noise of the kids running around outside, and girl scouts twice a week, not to mention the dog barking (the bathroom window is just below the nest) and the kitty cats roaming around the yard I thought she would decided to go elsewhere. I am guessing she likes the craziness of the house. Good thing too, because we love having her here.
