Baby birds are said to bring good luck

A parent Bewick's wren heading in to feed the brood

Oh, aren't they a cute brood?!
By the way, they fledged two days later. It's hard to believe they could be ready.

The house we are building in Arocutin, a small village on the west side of Lake Patzcuaro, has two active nests right now. Each has four baby birds. One nest is a Bewick's wren; the other is a Barn swallow. I sure wish Barn swallows were as tidy as Violet-green swallows. The latter use fecal sacs!
