We have 3 little ones!

Well, they're not ours, but they are living in our grill! As you can see, 3 of our little eggs hatched. I had just checked Tuesday night and there was nothing, and when John lifted the lid last night, this is what he discovered! So these little guys must have tapped their way out of their eggs sometime in the last 24-36 hours. I must admit baby birds are kinda gross-looking, but it's cool to see such a wonder of life occur right in your grill!

They must have some Moré genes in them because look at them begging for food! No one eats more than the members of my family. They have to be at least Italian.

We are so close to being able to use our grill again! FYI - we are not the only ones with this problem. Our neighbors informed us that they have had nest issues with their grill...despite an intact and in-place grill cover!

Oh, a bird found a small space left by a missing brick right near the roof of our house. It built a nest in there and left bird poop all over the front of the house. We were not as nice as you. Josh got a ladder, a brick, and mortar and sealed it up when the bird was out one day. If there were eggs, oh well. I know, call in PETA.
