As I was walking up the steps to my house yesterday, I noticed a some birds flying away from under our front porch. I didn't think too much of it until I noticed that they have started building a nest behind our outdoor lighting.

It took awhile to see them again, but finally got a photo of the birds. I'm not a bird expert, but after doing some google research, I think they may be some kind of House Finch.

I have to admit that  we were happy to have them trust our home as a place to raise their family. I hope the eggs will hatch and they will grow.

My only concern is people walking up and down the steps making them too nervous.

If you can help me with the type of bird they are please send me a message to
