Red Letter Day!

We were greeted this morning with grey skies and drizzle... Kind of a cozy day after a few nice warm sunny days. As Isaac and I stepped out onto the porch this morning to greet the day, we peeked into our nest as usual. This morning we saw something new. Pink and grey fluff-balls and a tiny pink finch working its way out into the world. I have never seen something so poignant as a pink-wet tiny seemingly helpless little bird makes its way out of the shell. It was simply wonderful. I am including pictures here, but they don't really do justice. Looking at the tiny hatchlings in the nest first hand is amazing. And I feel today, as if I have been given an amazing gift!
