Hi all,


Last year we had cardinals nest in our holly bush outside the front door.  This year a pair of brown thrashers took over the bush.  Here are some  pictures of the little ones from egg to empty nest.  It took mom around four days to lay the eggs and then after hatching the chicks were out and gone in about 9 nine days.  It was a bit tricky getting photos because we did not want to freak the parents out.  Isn’t nature something?


Enjoy!  Raggedy-Anne_thumb2








 This is one of the adults.  Its iris is yellow, the chicks start out with brown/black eyes.
