A Couple of Cute Chicks

We've got some new neighbors, a couple of cute chicks! The mama barn swallow made a nest on top of our upstairs porch fan, just like every year. This year everyone survived and we now have two young chicks calling out to their mama for food.

The two upstairs front bedrooms both have two full glass doors that lead out to the upper porch, each equipped with a screen door. The fan with the nest is right outside Taylor's room so she can lay in bed and watch the babies fluttering in their nest and calling out to mama for more food!

It is pretty messy under the fan but it won't be too much longer and they will fly out on their own. In the meantime we get to enjoy a little nature from right inside the house.

It turns out there are 4 birds- like a little birdie condo- they are stacked on each other.
