They’ve hatched ! Well, three out of four when I looked yesterday. Indeed, May 28th is the birthday for Azure’s and Celeste’s little children.
Rather funny looking, but plenty perky and responded when I whistled my “I’ve got mealworms” whistle. Mom and dad sat nearby calmly while I watered the garden. Knowing their children were safe and protected.
They should be in their nest for the next three weeks before they fledge as young teenagers, ready to torment their parents.
In the meantime, I better order some more bugs. I just know they’re going to gobble them down!
I just love your images. It is always such a pleasure to receive them. I hope you know how fortunate you are to be near all of this beautiful nature.
Such a beautiful comment Joyce, and indeed I am grateful every day for the beauty that surrounds me. It keeps me grounded and my spirit soothed. Thank you!
‘Teenagers ready to torment their parents’ some thing truly are man and nature lol
That is so funny Andy ! I think it is a true right of passage.
I am still stuck through that passage, dammit they didn’t make that door wide enough! why? Because I got a 14 year old oof :S
LOL ! Oh you poor child..I never had children for many reasons. This is #4. 🙂
#4? now i am curious what’s 1,2,3 😛
Congrats grand mom …. Guess u will be out showing off the pics of your adorable grand babies. Have the proud parents named them yet? :-))
Only time will tell if I get to see them after they leave the nest. Thanks Herb!
Those sparse feathers still crack me – your babies are gorgeous! 🙂
LOL ! You have truly the eyes only a mom would have Joanne.
Love the wide open beaks!
They are hungry and very responsive to movement. Well fed they will be. 🙂
Oh so cute ❤
Thank you so much!
Simply marvellous! Keep the happy news coming, please! 🙂 🙂 🙂
Our lives could use good news daily right? So far so good. I’ve been so busy this past week that I haven’t visited them much, which is actually a good thing.
I’ll take any good news going. Too much misery in the news…
How fantastic…..isn’t nature cool
Nature is totally awesome. No wonder I’m so addicted to it. Thanks Mark!
