Our little birdies hatched, and they were SO cute.  But apparently, we have a cat somewhere in the neighborhood that was hungry and found our little birds:(  When we moved the wreath, we set it up in one of our rocking chairs so that the mother wouldn't abandon them if we moved it too far away.  Not knowing we had a cat anywhere nearby.  He left his footprints in the pollen on the chair as evidence.  Jason always checked on them when he came home in the afternoons, and one day, they were gone, prints were found, and the nest was a mess.  He cleaned it out, and put the wreath up.  Stupid cat.

Here are a few pics of the babies before their untimely demise:

They were so fuzzy!  Look close in the first one, you can see one reaching up his head.

Yep, cats do that sort of thing. Unfortunately. We have a lot of cats around here, but strangely after the hawk showed up, I've not seen them out as much. ;o)
I love your new blog look!
Love you,

Stupid Cat. I am still sad for that momma bird we heard screaming. I wish I would have gone over there.

Ok. I'm starting to think you're doing Halloween over here. Boo? :oD
Love you,
See you in a few!
