Congratulations Diane ... :)... I've no idea what an adult Black Redstarts ...the only time I've been able to photograph fledglings were some Paradise Flycatchers who nested outside my back door ...
How fun to have a nest of babies. We've watched cardinals in their nest as they matured. An experience you'll never forget.Sam
Joyful I have been trying to keep away from the nest, but they are in a spot we need to go to. Obviously we do not seen to have caused to big a problem :) Diane
Graham this nest is in a small room outside where we keep the gardening tools, no door. The nest is only waist high and wedged between a broom and the wall!! Obviously the broom is now not unavailable. They are small birds, grey, with a red/brown tail, not madly interesting but lots of character. We had to block off the top of the door of our barn, they could get to the new insulation we had put in, it was where I had done the new ceiling last year. They made such a mess dropping the stuff all over the place. If they had only just taken what they needed.... Diane
Sam I am looking forward to watching their growth and leaving the nest. I only hope the neighbours cat stays away!! Diane
Ah, so sweet x
Kerry that they are, I just hope no predators find them! Diane xx
Awesome pic! My brother and I used to raise babt birds that fell out of nests. SOmetimes we'd bird nap them but our parents quickly put a stop to that.
Sweet to watch them grow.
Oh wow!! They look soooooo adorable! :)
Stephen I am glad that your parents put a stop to the bird-napping, I am sure the parents can do a better job of rearing them generally than a person can :-) Diane
Gaelyn I hope that we can watch them grow, they are safe from the weather, but the neighbour's cat is another story!! Diane
Kavi they look so sweet, I just hope that they are reared with no problems ;) Diane
look again! maybe there's a fifth one too!
How dear! I'll be waiting for updates. Have a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary
Oh, so cute.:-) Hugs Stina
Here's hoping they all grow big and strong.
lena, you could be right as I thought that thee were only 3 eggs!! LOL Diane
Mary I hope to have good updates, I feel quite worried about them as they are easily accessible! At least they have got to this stage which is good news. Keep well Diane
Stina they are cute, I just hope all goes well. Diane
lostpastremembered, Oh I sincerely hope so. Take care Diane
I hope they continue to thrive! So cute:)~Anne
Anne I hope so to. I will be very disappointed if they do not make it. Diane
Cute :-) We have them around and I like the curious noise they make: like rattling ball bearings. Here's hoping the nest does well.
Oh Diane what exciting news. It will be wonderful to watch them grow.I do hope the neighbours' cat stays away, are you able to fence the nest off in anyway? Difficult I know.So, you have "babies" to watch out for too now :)X
wonderful!Blog about life and travellingBlog about cooking
Niall and Antoinette, I am keeping my fingers crossed that all goes well. Keep well Diane
Dolly impossible to fence, but I hope that the little corner that Mum has picked, although very low, is hidden well enough behind the broom. As you can see though I can get to it! I must admit I am quite excited about it all :) Diane x
Ola I am delighted, Just hope that they do well. Diane
Congratulations Nana Diane! ;)
this is awesome..absolutely great joy to see them grow up..:)Tasty Appetite
Jacky, thanks LOL Diane
Jay I hope that you all get to see them grow up, very exciting.... Diane
Félicitations Diane! Vous voilà pourvue d'une nouvelle petite famille! C'est toujours magique à observer.Souhaitons leur bonne chance!
Merci Lucie. Je suis impatient de regarder la famille :)) Bonne journée, Diane
Baby birds seem to be all mouth. They will grow so fast.
Ce sont toujours des photos émouvantes. J'aime beaucoup. Merci.See soon.
How exciting! I'm not familiar with this bird and will check it out. You will have fun watching their progress! Birds are amazing. I have the Audubon Society app on my iphone and was in the background playing the bird sounds this morning. When I played the cardinal, 2 came to a nearby tree and echoed the sound from my phone. Looking forward to your updates!
Oh how cool is this Diane. I have been watching a live stream camera in a red hawk's nest, and a blue heron's nest. It is amazing to watch.
OMG... live from Charente... Can't wait to read d folo-up on them.. Watch out dear, do not upset the mother..
I am impressed that you managed to get so close without upsetting Mum.
Nantucket Daffodil thanks for the visit and comment, much appreciated. Take care Diane
backroadjournal you are right they will grow fast so it will be interesting to try and keep track. Have a great day Diane
Nadji, merci pour le commentaire. J'espère qu'ils vont bien grandir. A bientôt. Diane
Pam I have a couple of discs of bird calls in S.Africa but nothing of the birds in Europe. I am really excited about this nest and look forward to them growing up. Diane
Lyndsey, wish I had a live stream camera on this nest, though I would never get any work done!! Keep well Diane
Jo they really are cute and I hope they grow to be cuter :) Diane
ogyep yummy mellow I will watch to see when she goes out before I take any more photos. I have a lot of respect for Mum :) Diane
Linda the nest is in a corner of the shed, and when I saw Mum fly out it was easy to take a photo. She must be very used to us as all our garden tools are in there. Diane
Hi Diane .. I see you're lying in wait!! What a great little family - long may they flourish ...Cheers Hilary
Hilary, two days old today and all seems to be well. I managed a quick look while Mum was out today :) Diane
Oh how wonderful, do hope they all survive. Look forward to seeing them grow.
Karen I hope so as well :) Have a great day. Diane
Exciting having babies. A few months ago we had bunnies in my garden... too cute!
Christine the chicks really are cute. I have to admit I can do without the bunnies, I have had to fence my garden as they are such pests! Take care Diane
Wow, this is precious! My kids always glad whenever the robins makes nest at our porch and we could see their journey of having eggs and then hatching.. It's fun!
chubskulit, such a great way to bring children up seeing these things in real life and going through the cycles. I hope they keep breeding on your porch as it is fun to watch as well as educational. Diane
