Tom grew up in Milwaukee, bartended in Wauwatosa in the '70s and moved here in 1984.
Commentary, observations and musings about the outdoors, life in general and maybe Tosa politics and personalities will be the order of the day. He savors a lively debate as much as terrific cooking.
It has been three and a half weeks since I spotted the house finch nest in my hanging basket.
Complete with five jelly bean sized eggs.
All five hatched and all five little birds were present and accounted-for last week.
I checked yesterday after work and they're all still there.
The kids sure have grown and it has gotten rather crowded.
Two of them are huddled in the cup nest and the remaining three have huddled in the basket containing the plant. Both mom and dad gave me an earful when I checked in on the brood.
Hatching began on the 20th of May. Fledging occurs eleven to nineteen days after the hatch.
They'll probably fly the coop sometime this week maybe?
