12 days old, Little Wattle Bird chicks
I shot from further out for these, and as they didnt flinch I think I avoided making them overly nervous.
But just before I sat down to write this, I observed Mommy & Daddy Wattle Bird above the nest making loud calls. The volume is significant, as up to this point they have always 'spoken' softly to the chicks. I think they are encouraging the chicks to exercise those tender wings, if not outright leave the nest.
So prepare yourselves folks, our little Little Wattle Birds will be leaving the nest soon.
