So I just realized that I failed to post an update about our wee birds. I am happy to report that all five little chickies have flown the coop. We bid farewell to four of them on July 2nd leaving one little guy to fend for himself. Actually, truth be told, he was probably pretty happy to have the nest to himself for a night. It was getting just a wee bit cramped in there. Anyway, we said goodnight to our one remaining bird and then the following morning we watched as he flew away as well.
So all in all I think it was a great success. And now we are enjoying coming and going through our front door again.
