I just witnessed a miracle.
A wren couple built a nest in the inner sill of our kitchen window.
We've been hearing the hatched chicks, but never saw them, because of a clever partial "roof" one of the parents built hanging over the nest.
Now only did I get to see the chicks for the very first time--but I caught their first tentative steps and flight on video. Watch below.
I am in awe.
I'll miss the parents scrambling down the window screen from 6 AM to 8 PM every day to feed the babies--and yelling at us when we prepared food at the counter or made coffee!
