A New Baby In The Neighborhood

We have some new neighbors. The house has been vacant for two years and recently someone moved in.
It was about two years ago I found this sweet little angel birdhouse and hung it on a branch of the Japanese maple. No birds showed any interest and the house remained vacant. But one day this week I noticed it swaying and as I watched a little chickadee appeared at the entrance!
I decided I would try to get a closer look.So I edged closer to the tree. There was something a little fluffy looking. Was it a baby bird or just part of the nest?I moved in closer, held my camera up in front of the hole and snapped a picture. One cute little beak was poised just waiting for the parent to return with more food! You can click on the phot to enlarge it.I quickly backed away before the parents came back. Such a simple thing but what a thrill!
I'm not doing thankful Thursday as a regular post anymore , but today I want to say I am thankful to have experienced one of God's miracles....the miracle of birth.
