    how i was able to get so close was that they are on my front
    porch right next to my front door. we stopped using the front
    door so as not to disturbe the nest. when discovered we counted
    the eggs and have kept a close eye on them due to the cats
    running loose in the neighbor hood. protective yes nosy no. but
    we have seen the mom coming and going so they are going to be
    just fine i believe.
