Our Finch Eggs Have Hatched!

Hello everyone!  I thought I would give you an update today on our resident baby finches which I first posted about here.

Here's a recap:

This is a picture of an adult Red House Finch:



Last month, a  House Finch couple had made a nest in the wicker basket I had hanging on my front door. 




Here are the eggs:



Pin It

And here are the babies!



And this is what we named them:
Meet Fergie ( as in "I'm the F to the E, R, G, the I, the E
And can't no other lady put it down like me")
 Freddie (as in Freddie Mercury) ,
Farrah (as in Farrah Fawcett) 
and Fabio. 
All F names for Finch! 
Fergie and Freddie usually have their mouths wide open (just like the singers), Farrah has the longest feathered hair of the bunch and Fabio is always at the font of the nest, front line and center of attention!




Aren't they adorable?



You can see what seems to be an ear hole on Fabio's head here:



We love checking on them every day, especially my boys.

I think they are just too cute.  I will add more pics as they grow, stay tuned!

Thanks for coming by for a visit! I'd love to hear your comments! And please, become a follower!
