Wow! I loved those photos! I have never ever seen anything like that before. I am glad you put the penny in for scale, because I did not realize how tiny they were. I wonder what they use to get the nest so soft and cottony? Very amazing.

Wonderful pictures. So lifelike that Tigger and I were trying to catch them off the screen. It was neat to watch them be born and grow. They must be tiny little birds. Did your Mom take those pictures? Have a great Friday.
