Watching the Nest Box

What an amazing thing to get to witness.  Is yours a window box or have a hidden or tinted view window at the top so you can watch them without disturbing?  Really neat to see some babies hatched with an egg still unhatched - right in the process!

This is a regular nest box that the same couple(I think) has used for at least three years.  Keep a brick on the top since the hinges broke.  I'm actually around the box so much the parents don't mind until the babies begin to leave the nest, when they become a bit more protective.  I chirp to the babies & they sing back when I lift the lid.  The parents sit in a bush or tree nearby and just watch.  It's a wonderful thing to see.  Little ones survived the freeze overnight.  They're now chirping.
