Sharing a photo; this pair of birds made a nest in a wreath on our front porch. Each time we open the door they fly away.
My mother called her sister, she said these birds are house finch.

Last week we saw 4 tiny birds with little fuss on their heads, I took my first photo this morning, wow, in just a few short days they now have feathers.
I've deleted the icky stuff around the nest. Birds don't clean house.
Today we saw five birds! They are getting too big for their small nest on top of my wreath.
Opened the door this morning, the birds were gone. I missed seeing them fly away, we pulled down the wreath and threw it away.
