Expecting!

While we were away our resident California Towhee laid three eggs in the shrubbery right outside our kitchen/dining area window. This blessed event takes precedence over my showing pictures from the desert. Besides, technically we should still be there, not home, so just pretend I am still away from any Internet.
Maybe the babies will hatch before I offically get back?

  6. How wonderful that they nested where you can find and monitor the nest.
    I have Eastern Towhees but have never found their nest.

    Hope the nest is a success!

  8. There are birds everywhere and I know that they've all got a home somewhere but they're generally well hidden. There's always a bit of a thrill when you spot one and to get a wee look in is even better.
