I was trimming the hedge with the power trimmer when I noticed this nest (after cutting over it), so the trimming has to stop until they can fly.

Missed them by about an inch or less!

That's one way to get good exposure (in more ways that one).

At least now you'll have a pretty clear view of them growing up. Hope none of the neighborhood cats will discover it easier now. What are they?

Lucky find! I had a similar experience last weekend when I almost "trimed" a neo-natal robin that had fallen out of the nest. My wife recovered the baby bird and cared for it for two days (fed it moist cat food) and then took it over to a lady who specialized in helping baby birds reach maturity. You think the birds in image # 1 are trying not to be noticed?:lol: Nice and sharp images, BTW.

Very cool Tom. You won't have to travel far to do birding photography now.

I believe they are song sparrows, but I will try to get a shot of mom tomorrow and post it.
