Birk & Stock

View Large

 

These babies are getting big fast! You can see they are well feathered now. I love the little hatchling hairs that are still sticking out from under their feathers. All three of them (I believe this is Dad) are starting to get much more apprehensive of my standing so close and photographing them but seem to respond well to my addressing them softly.

 

I refer to them as Birk & Stock because as you can see their parents built their nest on top of an old pair of Birkenstock sandals that were on the shelf alongside our house.
