11 days old, Little Wattle Birds
Cramped but cozy. They have reached what I call 'awareness' now. Ive seen this with budgie and finch chicks too, it goes like this: thier eyes open and they are curious about who I am/what Im doing. They almost seem glad to see me - probally because there is little else to do. But one day, you visit and they appear afraid. Suddenly they are 'aware' that youre not a bird and therefore possibly a threat. Either that or Mum or Dad has had a talk with them, LOL!
I will try to shoot from further out from here so I dont stress them. Looking at those beautiful new glossy feathers, it wont be long before they are exercising thier wings!
