Our House Finch Babies

Posted on June 11, 2009 by

Last year a Robin built a nest in the rafters of our Kitchen porch. We never did get any pictures – I had grand visions of setting up a wireless webcam to watch them, but never did. We left the nest untouched through the winter in hopes there would be new occupants this spring. And we were blessed with a new family of House Finches.

We have seen the mama House Finch come to feed the babies, and start allowing us watch from the sidelines without flying away. Tonight we got out the camera and were able to capture some images of the babies! I’m not sure if there are 2 or 3 babies – most of the pictures show 2, but at one point one flew off, so maybe there are 3.
