Remember the WW where I told you about our first nest?
Then that one got scavenged and a new nest appeared.
Well, they hatched!! Sometime late Thursday 6/26, 3 of them hatched and the 4th came late 6/27. We have had a blast watching them grow! We think our babies grow fast~ in less then 2 weeks they are almost ready to leave the nest!! I thought it was a longer process then that!!
This bird rested like this as soon as it was strong enough to lift it's head up.
They have a good Mama! She feeds them all the time.
Here's all 4 of them~ getting their feathers.
Now they're so big there's not enough room!
But, I can't wait until they leave!! They hoist their big butts over the side of the clothes pin bag and poop on our picnic table, the deck or whatever is under them.
Plus, they're attracting little bugs. Mites? I don't know what they are but they're tiny and brown and look like teeny-tiny fuzz balls. And they're all over the birds, porch and patio table cushions.
Fun, but not so fun...
