Big news, fellow bird watchers! I believe the house finches' nest is ready for some tenants!
Here are pictures of the love birds' completed nest, which I took just a few minutes ago. Here's what the nest looks like standing in front of our front door (on a step stool)...
And here is the closeup:
Isn't it beautiful? Those house finches could be professional exterior decorators.
And here's a photo I took of the happy (?) couple, aka Gertie and Atticus Finch, throwing me some shade from the little conifer just outside our front door (while I took the photo from inside the front door).
(I don't get why the house finches, and our other avian visitors, take off as soon as they see me but totally ignore our bird-loving felines.)
Will check the nest for eggs next weekend. Seems the house finches are behind schedule this year.
