Nature: Bird Nest, Eggs, Newborn Baby Birds Growing Stages & Pictures

Bird Nest With Eggs Discovered


A stroll in the garden and looking on the growing plants and young trees. It happened a bird nest was discovered on a flowering plant.

Some believe that when birds come to the home, it brings good luck and fortune so make an effort to look around your home for nest. Not all nests come to good conclusions. There was an earlier incidence (1st batch of baby birds) with a recorded segment of it here . The nest had 2 eggs and they hatched to 2 little chicks. While in the formative three days, a bird was missing. The other was around and the feathers were still not grown. The following day, the remaining bird was also missing.

It could be concluded that predators might have spotted them in the nest and took the baby birds away. The predators could be squirrels or crows....

Baby Birds In Nest


Newly hatched baby birds, fragile and yearning for care.

All of the newly born chicks look similar immediately after they were hatched. The difference between the 1st batch and this 2nd batch is that the feathers of the later, were noticeable on the newborn chicks from 2nd day. The 2nd batch is another breed of birds.

The 1st four days, baby birds sleeping throughout the day.

Mother bird is always with them most of the time.

I had two sets of house sparrows nesting in my first this Spring! I am glad that they all survived to fly away. This is wonderful to be able to observe this process. Great pictures and great hub!

Hello....I have a nest of finches on my porch, and I have not seen the mother for two days. I doubt I am scaring her off by looking out my window because many days she would feed her babies while I read on my porch swing. I am nervous that they will die without being fed....but I am wondering is there a stage where the mother bird no longer nests with her chicks....they are bigger now, and moving around the nest a bit. Please help! Thank you.
