5 days old, Little Wattle Bird Chicks
We lose alot of details in the pics when making them small enough to load on your screen in a resonable time. So to help you see more detail, the second pic is a larger view of the first. (If you want it bigger, just say the word!)
In the first shot you can see how they are beginning to nicely fill the nest, and that more feathers are poking thru, mostly on the wings so far.
But in the second shot, you can see that feathers are beginning to emerge around the beak of one chick. This same chick appears to also have a bit more beak growth as well. Thier eyes are still closed.
In the third shot is our stalwart Mum, totally non-plussed at my getting this close. And to think just a few months ago, I despaired of ever getting a good shot of her - and now I have a truckload.
Never give up Foks!
