First Flight of the House Finches

In one of the trees that aligns our back deck, we have noticed for sometime the workings of a sweet house finch. First, as she built her nest, stick by stick. And then, a few weeks later, from within we heard the sounds of sweet baby "cheeps". And finally, the day came when the little ones were to leave the nest for the first time. By both momma and dad, they were feed, and cared for, until the time came to test their little wings. One didn't fare too well on his first attempt. Somehow he managed to work his way around to the side of our house and got himself stuck in our garage. Not a great start, but we managed to shoo him free and off he went.
