My babies are leaving the nest.

Literally. The baby birds that are nesting under the back porch are learning to fly. I can't believe how big they've gotten!
I know they're crappy pictures, but it was late afternoon and all I had was my cell phone.
There are six birds total I think. I picked them up to put them back in their nest. And no, it's not true about the Momma killing the babies if you touch them. If your hands are dirty or you squeeze too tight that'll be enough to do the trick.
I'll tell you one thing- there's not much room left in that nest!

Their eyes make them look like little demon spawn.
