Blue Birds...Day # 4

Today when I opened the box to check on the nestlings they were still, not a peep, no gaping even when I whistled. I think they were in a food induced coma....now we can all relate to that one, right!!??
If  you look closely at their tiny little wings you are starting to see feather sheaths beginning to emerge.  Look at that soft gray down on the wings, head and spines.  Feel sorry for the tiny one at the bottom of this pile.
 I also caught a shot of the barn swallow eggs before mom and dad bombed me and a quick photo of our little hummingbird.

  1. Soon they will leave the nest. They grow up so fast.

  2. Oh, they are so cute -- we have been watching some Robin babies in a nest near our house -- the kids love to see how they have been growing so fast and are so big now they barely fit in the nest anymore :-)
