Our Birdhouse on the porch is having a particularly busy year. Right now, it has its second nest this year in it! When both parents were out I snapped two quick pictures. I think there are at least four noisy babies in there and the parents are in and out all day. I can actually hear the babies chirping from inside the house and unfortunately, so can my budgies but that's a different issue.

I think they are a kind of sparrow but the parents have been coming and going so much with all those mouths to feed that none of us have been able to get a clear look or picture.

Lucky you! What kind? Look like baby thrushes. ( maybe remembering the name wrong..)
I managed to get a better look at one and I think it may be a house wren. The beak and tail position are similar. They say that they have two broods a season and sometimes even 3! That sounds like a lot of work for those poor parents. Those babies are demanding. I can't believe how many bugs they are finding :eek:.

Bird parents are definitely very, very hardworking! :eek: I don't think I could do it, haha.
They are so cute! Love that you can enjoy them by your house, that's very cool.
Thanks for sharing!
Haha, I would not last long as a bird parent. I don't have the coordination to those moving beak target :laughing:. I'm not sure if it's sight but I got them a bit excited when I took the picture because of the shadow I assume as I repeated making a shadow over it two more times and they got excited each time and they do not sit still when asking for food.
