    Awesome! We have nesting birds in our yard but damned if I can find a hummingbird nest or the lesser goldfinch nest in our large trees. The house finches have fledged and are gone but I think they may have another brood. I would love to have a next where I could observe it, so yeah, updates would be cool.

    Last weekend I went out and got my 5th wheel from the farm to go camping. I had the electrical hookup rolled up in the hitch. When I pulled it out, a nest fell in the back of my truck with 4 baby robins in it. I put them back in the nest and moved them to a tree behind the shed. They all fell out without in minutes.
    I felt kind of bad about that.

    As long as the parents can find them they will still take care of the chicks out of the nest. They fledge pretty fast so maybe they were almost ready.
