Sweet Birdie Babies

For the past three years, a family of birds has returned to the same spot at my office to build their nest and hatch some babies. It is always the same breed of bird (not sure what it is), but I wonder, is it the same parents returning or the kids from the previous year coming back "home?" I love watching the process: building the nest, laying and warming the eggs, and finally seeing the little chicks grow up! Here are a couple shots I got while the mom was away. She screams and dives at us if we take too long near her babies! The top photo is soon after they hatched and the bottom photo is around two weeks later.
