More birdie news!



Well this is our 3rd evening of fostering these 2 little birdies. At 5am the parents start tweeting outside my bedroom window, we take the birds outside, the parents feed them all day, and then the children give them flying lessons in the afternoon before bringing them in when it gets dark. Today we realised that their are more babies in the nest, as we could hear them chirping very loudy!

I think that these 2 must have fallen out of the nest, as they really weren't ready to fly. The pic below shows one of them in flight after Paige throwing it into the air, only problem is what goes up, must come down - at least they're getting the hang of flapping their wings. Even the parents have become tamer, I think they've realised we're just helping, as they fly down really close to us now to feed them, whereas in the beginning, they kept their distance.
