Blackbird nest in the organic vineyard

Every year the organic vineyard here at Finca del Rio attracts lots of wildlife, especially birds. This year we currently have four nests (nidos in spanish). The current visiters are Blackbirds (mirlo) who have built a nest in the rear vineyard.

Two eggs appeared towards the end of June.

As we inspected the current grapes, we found two hatchlings sleeping, shaded from the hot sun.
