Baby birds

Nobody said it's always gotta be about plants right...

Still haven't figured out what kind of bird is nesting in the arborvitae out front. The mama bird is super shy and flies far away everytime I get anywhere close to the nest. I used the binoculars and if I was looking at the right bird, I think she's an even brownish-gray on top with lighter underside marked with darker streaks. The five eggs were pale blue-green with just a few dark-brown speckles. Four have hatched already - but I haven't checked to see if the last one might have hatched overnight. So cool everytime!
