Wow! You're so fortunate to get to have sighted one, and to have this opportunity to observe this process!

Well, I think this page from Birds and Blooms has some great answers and links for further exploration that you and your kids can enjoy.

In short, she likely has two bean-sized eggs, and she'll sit on them for only 15-18 days, and then the little ones will need another month to get their feathers and be able to fly.

To help her, consider putting out a feeder. Dissolve 1 part sugar into 4 parts boiled water, then cool. Keep that solution fresh and clean, and make sure no cats are loose outdoors.

We here in Corvallis are super-fortunate to have a very active and productive Audubon chapter with a great website full of goodies you might enjoy. I'd also encourage you to find your closest local chapter because they may also have fabulous resources.
