day 111 - house guests

We have been watching a female house finch for the past few weeks as she built a nest, laid her eggs and is now is sitting on them, almost continuously, while she waits for them to hatch. The nest is just outside our front door, under the covered entry. Today, we saw the male make an appearance, feeding the female and keeping her company. I think we are very close to having hatchlings! The girls love looking out and seeing the nest there and so do I.  I managed to grab a few pics today, through the door panes. Stay tuned for baby birds!
