Feeding Time for Robins and Chickadees

Cathcart Street Nests

 "I'm hungry Ma!"

My next door neighbours have hungry birds nesting at the front of their house, as do my wife and I. The neighbours are hosting a robin's nest with at least three chicks, we are home to a wee yellow birdhouse with an undetermined number of young inside. 

 "Open wide, Kiddies!"

 "The coast is clear"

"Bombs away, Kiddies"

Our birdhouse has a one-inch entry hole - a relatively tight squeeze - and has not had inhabitants since I put in in place 5 - 6 years ago. So, we have been pleasantly surprised, and when the birds vacate their nest I will enlarge the hole to be better prepared for next year's guests.
