Eggs, Baby Birds & Cages...

A couple of weeks ago Janice, showed some fabulous Miniature Cages on her blog.
They are just what I've been looking for, for Eeylops Owl Emporium and Janice, very kindly shared the link to the Etsy Shop, from where she brought them. I went over to have a look and ended up ordering six of the little Cage's. Well they arrived yesterday, actually much sooner then I expected and I have to say they are really lovely. I just need to get some chain, as I want to hang them from the ceiling in Eeylops. The seller also very kindly included some little charms, which I'm sure will come in handy either in my Miniatures or my Scrapbooks. There are some fabulous charms, in this Etsy shop, lots of which could be used in our Miniature Hobby. I did notice some Tiny little Eiffel Towers in there and some tiny glass bottles. I ended up spending nearly an hour looking through there, so be prepared.
On the home front, while up in the top of the field, a few weeks ago, we found a tiny Blue and White empty Egg Shell, right next to the Hedge. We think it belongs to a Robin, as there are quite a few of them nesting up there. But I could be totally wrong on the species and it might belong to something else.
We have lots of Swallows/House Martins nesting around our house under the eaves, but they are also nesting in our Wood Store and in the Stables. The Cats are being constantly dive bombed, by the Adults, trying to protect their babies.
We knew one of the Nests in the Stables had Chicks in, but until yesterday we haven't been able to see them. I walked in there with the camera and a couple of the Chicks were peeking out of the top of the nest, not at all fazed by me and the camera. There are definitely Four Chicks in there, but we think there could be five. If you click on the pictures they will pop up bigger, so you can get a good look. I just love all the fluff around their heads, they look so snug in the nest and so cute...

Thank you for the link to the Etsy shop Debbie, she has some fantastic items, gonna sit down with a cuppa soon & have a browse as a couple of things have caught my eye.
The baby birds are adorable, we have had a few baby blackbirds in our garden & they seem to be very tame, hopping about while I'm weeding.
Hugs, Kerry.x.

Debbie, it's good to see you posting. I love the cages. I am going to join Kerry and browse the site you posted. I have all kinds of baby birds right now and they are growing fast. I ahve trouble keeping my mind on the computer. It is right next to a window that looks out on the bird feeders. We have thrashers, woodpeckers and Cactus Wren babies right now. Great fun to watch.
