Photo Submission

What fun it was to have house finches nesting on a wreath on our front door a number of years ago. Photographing the birds without being disruptive to the nesting was a challenge (a nest cam would have been great), but with black fabric draped over the windows, a tripod placed on a table next to the door, and a laptop computer to trigger the camera remotely, we concocted a system that worked. Through our photographs we were able to witness the amazing happenings on the other side of the door until all five babies successfully fledged. Sadly, most of our photos were lost when our hard drive crashed, but the memories of those few weeks will be with us forever.
