Front door family

A sparrow built a nest in the Christmas wreath on our front door. One day, there were two eggs, the next day three eggs and finally now four eggs.

  5. Great shots but now you'll have to leave the Christmas wreath up for weeks until the hatch and fly away. Oh will, Christmas in July is always good.

  6. Great Photo Leif! Das wird bestimmt spannend wenn sie alle aus den Eiern kommen. Da gibt es dann viel Geschrei...bei den jungen Vögeln. Ich kenne das die schreien den ganzen Tag nach Essen. Für Deine Töchter wird das auch eine spannende Erfahrung sein. Herzliche Grüsse:)

  14. I asked my husband just last week... if you find an abandoned bird's nest, won't you bring it home to me? :D

  15. That's unbelievable! How could the sparrow lay eggs there? So cool! Maybe she thought that your wreath is a tree. That is why she nested her eggs there. ;D
