Or not. Can I be a godmother? Foster Mother? ADOPTIVE MOTHER? I added hanging baskets to my covered front porch recently. Within a few days, a little bird had claimed one for her own. She built a perfect little nest....and one day.... Two eggs! And then the next day.... Three eggs! And then the next day.... Four eggs! And then the next day.... Five eggs! And then the next day........ Apparently five were enough for her......This was on May 3rd. Been checking....still nothing.... And then today!! 10 days later..... BABIES! There are at least two hatched....they are SO TINY. I'm so excited! I have no idea what kind of birds they are....small ones, ha ha ha. Some sort of wild finch or sparrow sized bird?
