Birds nest on local porch year after year

April 22nd, 2010 · Comments

Don tells us that some birds nest on his porch every year, so he decided to take daily pictures of the progress of nest building and egg laying and created a special website to document it. He thinks the birds are purple finches.

The nests are in a depression in the top of a pillar on the South West and South East corners of our front porch.

As of yesterday, there are five eggs in one of the nests.
