Birdie update

Well the babies now named Cheese and Robin {don't ask me why!} spent the whole day outside hiding under plants mostly, with mom and dad flying around and dropping down to feed them. It was after 5:30 by the time the girls and I got home from extra murals, and they decided it was time to help the babies learn how to fly. Matthew and Paige patiently spent time lifting the babies onto the wall in the courtyard where the washing lines are. The parents flew backwards and forwards, and the babies tried to follow them unfortunately Cheese is heavier than Robin, and gravity and his heavy tummy make it hard for him to stay in the air LOL. I'm sure that after their flying lesson today, they're going to make great strides tommorow, right now however, they're back in the cage in our garage to keep them safe for the night, and they can become their parents responsiblity again tomorrow!

I believe your Birdies are Familiar chats! Had one sit on my scraptable on holiday in Namibia in May, took lots of photos--you lucky lucky thing. Fostered a couple of flycatchers 2 years ago. Keep Safe!
