Weekly Photo Challenge: Growth
I came across these baby birds on Sunday. There are four of them in the nest. They’re at a downy stage and ever so cute. It won’t be long before they take their virgin flight.
Mom is very protective. She swoops in and aims for you when you get close to the nest. I find myself instinctively ducking so she doesn’t hit me in the face. I was lucky on Sunday as she didn’t get so close and I was able to take a number of photos. I think it may have been because several other people were stopping to see them and take pictures. One woman asked, “Those aren’t real, are they”? Yes, they most definitely are real.
