First baby finch hatched July 29 at 4:30 PM
Fourth baby finch hatched July 31
Aug. 14 We have moved the camera location as the babies are getting ready to fledge. They have started to test their wings and could start leaving the nest at any time. The parent birds seem to be encouraging them to leave by singing at perch locations away from the nest.
Notice to viewers: The nest is illuminated at night by the porch light near the hanging plant chosen by the finch for nesting.
