Oooo fun!!!! We have some titmouses (titmice?) building a nest in the car port. I love hearing them tweet. We had a nest in a tree outside the kitchen window but hubby accidentially bumped the tree when weedwacking and knocked the nest out of the tree and broke the egg.

YAY! Is it an American Robin? We saved an American Robin once when it was attacked by something. It would've died if we didn't find it. I'm glad we were there, and not someone who would just kill it and put it out of it's misery! But, she was a sweety! She had a bright red chest, and she *sang* this particular tune, so we named her Cherry-Lee! She flew away one day, though. But it was best... we always wanted to let her go, but just loved her. I guess it was God's way of saying if we loved her, we needed to let her go. So, he let her go for us. I can't wait to see pictures!!! YAY!

A titmouse looks like a tiny little finch. They stick around for the winter, so we have a couple of feeders for them. The ones where I live are either primarily blue or yellow. I'm not sure about the plural, either - I've heard them referred to as "blue tits" by Brits. http://www.naturfotografie-digital.d...eise-fotos.php

We're having a lot of fun birdwatching right now. There's a pair of magpies (possibly two gay males) here that have been trying to raise a family for 6 or 7 years now, with a total lack of success. Right now they have a baby crow they're raising, probably "stolen", and watching the three of them is a real hoot. http://www.fotonatur.de/singvoegel/e...sdauuricus.php

When they lay eggs we will be wanting nestcam - 24 hours - you do realise this don't you

Yes - they look like blue tits. We have lots of different species of tit bird here in the UK. My favourite is one that is not very common but we're lucky enough to have a colony of 13 that live near our garden. They are called Long-tailed Tits and are very tiny with......you guessed it.....long tails!!! http://66.102.9.104/search?q=cache:3...led+tits&hl=en

Also on a birdie theme - one of our hens has been egg-sitting since Saturday. We're keeping our fingers crossed that we might have fluffy yellow chicks in a couple of weeks!!

Oh how sweet and fun/interesting!! Enjoy watching for me, I'd love to have something like that happen at my house someday.

Well, I"ve been watching the birdie make her nest all day. She brings little twigs and fluff, puts it in, then sits in it, wiggling her butt, seeing if it fits, and then flys off again! I did take some pics, hopefully they come out.

Robins are how I found The Cat Site! Last year we had a pair hatch and raise two chicks in a tree in our back yard. One day one fell out of the nest and I did an internet search and found all of you WONDERFUL PEOPLE! Enjoy your birdies. Ours chose to build somewhere else this year.
