We also have a nest of baby sparrows on our back porch now - I copied a pic from a previous blog of the parents building the nest earlier this spring.
My daughter checked (her annual ritual) and she found the first baby that had hatched! He is safely back in his nest now.
When my daughter was younger she started feeding the sparrow babies on our porch harlequin bugs that she caught from the garden.
After a violent storm last year we had purple martin babies thrown from their gourds onto the ground.
We picked them up and put them back in their nests.
In past years we have had a lot of killdeer nesting in our yard - This is a pic of my daughter with a courageous mother that refused to leave her nest.
Here is another kildeer nest. The babies hatched before our eyes! They started running almost immediately!
Here is a nest of barn swallows she found - they were also safely put back in the nest - she loved them so much.
And finally - we continually have baby cottontail bunnies - some are orphaned due to unfortunate circumstances (we have dogs).
This was a bunny from a later year.
