Baby Birds

There is a nest filled with baby birds that just hatched a few days ago, right outside our living room window. It's about 1.5 feet from the window just above Streak's bed, so close that we could reach out and grab it! The mom bird comes back to the nest regularly with food and the little babies stretch their necks up, beaks open, waiting for her. I think they might fly soon! Here is a picture of the mother bird carrying some things back to the nest:

Here is my best attempt at photographing one of the baby birds. He is just below (and a little to the left) of the largest pink flower:

Let us know if you can identify what type of bird this is!
