The sound, of a faint *cheep, cheep, cheep*, alerted us that baby birds were in the vicinity.
We searched the area and found three sleeping baby birds. They were covered in gray/brown fuzzy down and were very precious.
The nest was only about three inches wide, and was nestled among the branches of the young Blue Spruce tree outside of our raised bed garden.
We stepped back and gave them room to feed their babies in comfort.
And we just marveled in the sight. . . another one of nature's gifts.
These birds are American Tree Sparrows.
Note what the adults birds have in their mouths, they eat 100% animals matter, mostly insects. Read more about them here and listen to their bird call.
