This photo was taken in the spring before I came to Loyola. This nest was built on top of one of the lamps attached to my garage. Even though it looks really close, we maintained a safe distance between us and the baby birds. In fact, all we had seen were their beaks because it wasn't until I took this picture did we see what they actually looked like. I must say, they probably don't have enough feathers to win any contests for being the most adorable but they were definitely a sign of new beginnings and limitless potential, which I find to be beautiful. I guess the mother bird liked the spot because she has come back to lay her eggs every year since then.
