I was taking down a nesting box to check its condition when I was surprised by a mother chickadee as she flew out the opening. I had no idea she had built a nest and that some of the eggs had already hatched! This is what I found when I looked inside—two newly-hatched chickadees and two pink and white speckled eggs that have yet to divulge their hidden treasures. What a lovely find on this beautiful April day! Brand new chickadees that will eventually emerge into the world to grace us with their lively twittering presence!

    How beautiful, they are so translucent, you can see their spines. They will continue to give you pleasure as they grow and leave the nest. Thanks so much for sharing your treasure with us! Dee
