Lesson 1256 – Update on the porch House Finch family

Yesterday I took a photo of the bird’s nest in the holiday wreath on our porch. To take these, I sneak up when the parents are not there and angle my phone so that I can quickly snap a shot. This is what I got.

What??!! These must be the fastest growing birds in the world.
Just the other day they were tiny balls of fluff and now they are fully feathered. They almost look like adult birds and very soon, (too soon) they will be getting ready to leave the nest.
It was all so fast – in the blink of an eye.
How on earth does that even happen?
