Believe it or Not

We had a House Sparrow nest in our back yard this summer. But it wasn’t in a tree. It was in through that little space you can see in this picture between the gutter and the top of our chimney (a safe place from predators for sure).

I know there were birds in there because we could hear them from inside the house. This space is just above the wood stove alcove in our family room so the sound carries into the house quite well. So well in fact that during the past several weeks all we could hear in our family room was the constant chirping of the babies demanding more food.

And then suddenly it was quiet again. The time had come to leave the nest and they were gone.

I tried many times to get a picture of the birds coming or going or just peeking out through the opening but I was never able to catch them in the act. So this is all I have to document the event and you’ll just have to take my word for it.
