My Little Pretties

Ooooh, look at those mouths! Three of them! They should be feeding every 15-20 minutes by now. They say when they fledge, and drop on the ground, we really shouldn't interfere. I guess we'll all find out in a few days. More to come, folks!

Gosh, I'd hate to have to feed those big mouths! -smile- We have a barn full of baby swallows and they chirp and poop from dawn to dusk.
If there's cement underneath the nest, I'd put a rug so when they fall it's not on the terribly hard stuff.
But then I'm a worry wart.

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to leave a comment.
It is so much fun to watch baby birds grow up and leave the nest. I've had the privilege to watch that quite a few times and never tire of it. :-)

ms. sandra! to start with, i am really unsure whether these are robins or swallows or something they call starlings! it is so funny but so worrisome, too, haha! i will put a rug. you should hear my husband, they have this funny local expletive where he comes from in the philippines - not serious at all - something you say when you're worried - and he keeps saying it because he hasn't seen the mom in he says the longest time! he is ready to feed them worms. dead serious. lol

oh wow, your two boys are blessed to see nature's transformation right at your own home Che. hope the mom goes back soon to feed the baby birds and nothing was wrong with her. they are so cute. you just have to clean that part so well after the day they all leave you for good :( it is a lot of work too, but the joy of seeing the chicks grow and how they progress is priceless.

cherie said...

Hello Cherie, that is quite the picture. Their wide-open mouths sends a colorful signal to their parents.
The red throats tell the parents, "Feed us! Feed us!"

Thanks for dropping by, I appreciate it.

usually the parents will feed them on the ground until they can fend for themselves. What a wonderful photo. Birds are one of my passions

Pamela said...

I doubt they are robins.
