It's been a good year for baby birds near our house. We had a pair of ravens nest in the front yard, and they have three babies now flying about. Of course, they make a lot of noise, and a big mess, but they are still fun to see. We also had two baby hummingbirds in the backyard. My mom got to see them take their first flight. They were very cute, and nice and quiet! Plus there is a pair of hawks in the back alley, and we think they have one baby. A couple of years ago they nested in the tree that now has the ravens, so they often sit in that tree, much to the ravens dismay. My sister has a nest of baby sparrows - we can't see them yet, but we can hear them!
