There is a tree in the backyard of my house where a nest out by a couple of Finches birds for the last few months.
But they haven't laid an egg yet, so I want to know, Finches doesn't give birth in the summer?
I will endorse Cin's reply, particularly the last sentence.
Not only is it illegal, but getting close enough to see will also disturb the birds, whatever species they are, and if there are any eggs, they will abandon them for fear of predation. Even if you mean no harm, the birds don't know that and survival without fear will take precedence.
