Baby Fev-vers!

I have some special visitors on my front porch.  I kept hearing all of this noise outside and look what we found!

We have live baby fev-vers in our Gamecock bird house on the front porch.  Mom keeps her eyes open when she comes outside just in case the mom and dad fev-ver decide to attack her.
You may need to bigify to see the fev-ver's head!

The momma fev-ver is feeding the babies now!

You may ask why Mom put the birdhouse on the front porch so close to traffic.  She honestly bought the birdhouse for a decoration, having no idea that birds would actually build a nest in it.  We've had baby birds twice a year for the past three year in the house.  It must be the Gamecock on the house that attracts them.

I got all excited when I saw the headline, thinking it was going to be a Baby Praline photo playing with fev-vers!

Oh!! Lucky you!! We love it when birdies make their nests near the house even if there is a law (yes, a LAW) in our house that we can only look and not touch them...we still like to watch!! Have fun! Purrs, Lautrec and Tiny (Weezdabadcats)

How fun that you get to watch the birdie family! That's not just bird TV - it's bird theatre!

How cool to have your own baby fev-vers! We get fev-vers in our fireplace every year. Dad says he's going to cap it every year....repeat next year.

That is soooo cool! Our egg haven't hatched yet. There are 5 eggs, we are very excited!

The Island Cats said...

That's very cool! Those look like wrens. They like to build nests in bird houses like yours.

Daisy said...

What a happy surprise that the birdies are using your little birdhouse!

Brian said...

Wow Sweet Praline, you have your own private Bird-TV channel!

Kea said...

Wow, Praline, that's so exciting! What pawsome kitty tv! We had baby house finches in a hanging basket outside our front door a couple of years ago and THAT was very interesting!

Hannah and Lucy said...

How lovely to have baby fevers to watch when your Mom has gone to work.

Bird TV is the best!...Happy week sweetheart...xo...Calle, Halle, Sukki

Simba said...

Aww, how lovely!

Marg said...

LOL for sure it is the Gamecock that attracted the birds. That is too neat to have baby birds there. Actually that probably is a very safe place for them, because other animals like cats cannot get up to the house. That really is a great looking birdhouse and our Mom got a kick out of it since we live in Clemson country.

Busby and Raymond said...

Those birdies just could not resist that great house! Your Mom may need to use the back door for awhile. xoxo

The Paw Relations said...

You're so lucky! Our mum put up boxes especially for the birdies to nest in and they won't use them.

Remington said...

Cool friends, Praline!

The Kool~Kittie~Krew said...

That is the coolest, Praline! You're furry own fevvers! We have bird houses all over (6 of them) and aside from a B~I~G nasty gross spider (mom said that) they haven't yet been occupied. The beans keep checking though.

What FUN! We have a Verdin nest in our jasmine, but so far no baby birdies.

Wow, is that ever cool! And it's in a great location for you to watch from the front door, Praline! Do you ever get really excited when you see those fev-vers flying about?

I adore that first picture of you, by the way. I love the look on your face -- it's one I haven't seen before!

Angel and Kirby said...

Those are fun to watch!

Laila and Minchie said...

How cute! Be careful none of them get inside.

Cat of Nine Tales said...

So that's the trick to attract nesting birds! Putting a bird house up for decoration only. See we've been putting up houses for years and they only end up as decoration. Well, sometimes we get evil squirrels for a time.

Fin said...

How cool. We have bird houses up and no one goes in them at all.

A few Good Cats said...

Win-win for everyone! The birds get a place to raise their babies, you get some smashing BirdTV, and your human mom gets lots of good karma.

Mr. Hendrix said...

my black furs are turning green with envy. baby fev-vers to watch?!? you are so so lucky.

we have lotsa bird feeders, but no houses yet. mommy is more inspired to get one now that she sees your cute one. I wonder if we can find a Bengals birdhouse?
