Summary
In this children's picture book, two goldfinches work hard to protect their chicks when a storm brews. A house in the woods has a south-facing covered porch with a hanging basket of pretty pink flowers. Mr. and Mrs. Finch believe it's just the place to raise a family. They build a nest in the basket, and soon, Mrs. Finch lays three white eggs. The parents take turns sitting on the nest, and after the chicks hatch and grow, they also take turns feeding and sheltering the hungry nestlings. One day, though, a frightening storm arises. Mr. and Mrs. Finch spread their wings protectively over the chicks--she in the nest, he on the basket's handle. After an exhausting struggle against wind, rain, and hail, the birds make it through safely
