So in late May/2008, I noticed a house finch building a nest on top
of a rain gutter on the NE corner of my house.
Since there is power nearby and it's under an overhanging roof eve, I was
able to install a webcam
for a ... uhhhh ... bird's eye view
of the baby finches as they hatched and started to grow.
You can view lots of pictures/videos of the finch family
and people enjoyed watching in real-time plus commenting on the
And while I'm not a birder, I had grown pretty fond of these little guys.
But nature can be unforgiving ... and 11 days after the baby finches hatched,
a Colorado Blue Jay came by and grabbed three of them. But I believe
the fourth one "made it"
with encouragment from its parents.
