Nestlings

    I know you can barely see the chicks, but there are a couple there and you should be able to see one face. And of course the protective parent. Another shot below.

      Annett, yes there were two. Possible there were more, I guess, but I don't think they would normally have more than 2 :) Thanks!

      Valerie, glad you liked seeing them! Many thanks!

      Thanks a lot Connie and Carrie. Yeah, proud indeed :) The other parent was standing guard just to the right of the pic.

      Nice shot! You did good getting the chicks. I recently had that problem with some wild turkey chicks.
