House of birds

Walking around the UMD campus I spotted some House Finches visiting a bird feeder hanging outside of a faculty member's office window.  From there I was too far away for a decent photo, but I was able to stalk the birds back to their nest under the student dinning center.  Their nest was situated on top of the anti-pigeon spikes.  There I also found a House Sparrow nesting in an old swallow nest suspended under the building.  And a pigeon nest on top of the anti-pigeon spikes, with a couple young pigeons peeking out.
