Just protecting what I love on an island in the Pacific.

Blue Birds...Day #3
They are growing like weeds.Mom and dad are nearby ready to bring a lovely meal worm dinner to the brood. Right now they weigh about 1/3 of an ounce. Eyes are still closed. The nestilings (that's what they are called at this stage) are unable to regulate their body temperature for the first 6 days...so momma is needed to keep them warm. **Blue bird info courtesy of BAN....Bluebirds across Nebraska
I can't believe how fast they are growing...it'll be no time and they'll be flying around the ranch.
Have a great friday....
