The Twiggy Wreath

This year, a pair of slate colored juncos (I think?), [no! Alder Flycatchers, I learned] decided to build their nest right beside our busy kitchen door in the top of the heart-shaped twig wreath. I almost discarded that wreath this spring! Now there are four babies in the tiny nest that is under an alcove protected from the sun and rain.

The nest is so crowded! I fear that one may topple out as they grow. Both adults are attentive in the feedings.
