We got another peek!
Mom and Dad are both gone, likely catching worms and seedy things to make bird milk for their babies.
So we nosed in with our camera, careful not to touch.
The babies seem completely unruffled by our intrusion.
They haven't been to survival school yet, so they don't know that they are supposed to be afraid of us.
They are getting little feathers, a process called "fledging". One more week and they will be "full fledged". Baby birds grow up fast.
Two more weeks after that, they are supposed to be out of the nest.
Seems awfully soon for something so little and vulnerable.
Stay, little birds, and I will take care of you.
