8 days old, Little Wattle Bird Chicks




Dad Little Wattle Bird came back from foraging while I was shooting the chicks yesterday. I took his pic as I slowly backed away. Its pretty clear he wasnt impressed with me!

Those are awesome pics Lavender! And oh my gosh I don't think I've ever seen a more pissed off bird in my life! If looks could kill I'm afraid we'd be getting no more photos from you - wow!!

Lavender said...

Anon Teehehe The first pic "FEED ME!!!" thats one energetic chick...must love his insects! You know youre in trouble when they look at you with BOTH eyes :)

Catnapping They certinally are, they are more curious too...Ive started talking to them when I visit - hopefully they will remember me when theyve grown up and not think Im a predator LOL

Barkfoot He i, isnt he?! Man, I thought for sure he was going to fly up and peck me...actually surprised he didnt LOL!

BetteJo LOL! Youre so right BetteJo! You can be sure I will be quicker with the next shots so I dont have to run into him again tehehe :)

Love the 'feed me!' pic. The Wattle Bird on the lower pic does not want you around!

Perriette said...

I wouldn't be impressed if you were shooting my kids, either!

Heee, great photos, you should try starting a business of doing childrens portraits. Of birds, of course.

Lavender said...

Pawhealer He was VERY irritated LOL. Must avoid him! :)

KJ I can see how they would look scary, I really can. But soon they will just be handsome birds, amazing!

Nick He was one angry Dad, LOL!
