Since I know that you are dying to hear an update on the baby birds, (: I'll tell you that they grew up and moved out.
The other day I looked in the front yard and noticed a bird hopping around the yard. We checked the nest and they were gone! The little birds were out practicing their flying. How cute. We had to protect them from the cat (the great grey hunter as John calls her) and the road. I know what the expression "empty nest" comes from. We miss having the birds on our porch!
