so about a month ago, a pair of black-capped chickadees started nesting in a birdhouse i'd put up. every day i waited till the parents left, then went to look at their progress. they used everything from moss, to the rabbit hair from my (shedding-so-much-you-could-build-another-rabbit-outa-all-the-hair) rabbit that i'd put out as nest liner for all the birds! then, a few days later, 2 eggs were laid- white with reddish-brown speckles. a few days later, there were six eggs! i looked in almost every day when the parent birds left (one while she was actually brooding them!!!-oops! i left right away...) and today, about twelve days later, they hatched!!!! i peeked in, not expecting to finds anything unusual, and i was greeted by 5 wide open mouths, begging for food! they had only a bit of fuzz covering them, but they looked pretty dry. they probably couldn't see yet out of those adorable ( ) bulging eyes, but i'm not sure.... anyway, momma bird started yelling at me, so i had to leave. i'll see if i can get pictures up soon!
