One little hatchling has made an appearance. Not even strong enough to cheep, just lift its little head. Hope momma comes back with food soon! Oilburner is thinking of going to buy some worms...
Lori:MMMM, scrambled eggs, egg omelette, or eggs benedict. I'm getting hungry . . .bobRiding the Wet Coast
Bob, I think you would need to crave balut eggs in this case. :) Did you make any eggs benedict over the weekend though?
Tell Oilburner that he will need to pre-chew the worms....
I wanna see that!! LOL But I think he was just thinking of making it available to mama bird so she didn't have to go searching hither and yon for food.
Or a blender...
Well...at this age it does save on defeathering...but there sure isn't much meat. ;)
Wow, that didn't take long for at least one to hatch. Poor ugly little thing. At least they get cuter as they get older.Ha, Richard - that was funny!
I know! It seems to fast. However, he is still all alone. Cuter....hmmm...as CircleBlue has said, I'm scared of the noise they will begin to make.
Hope momma shows up soon! Richard is right about the worms ... lol
Mama is back, along with dad. The squeaking hasn't started yet... :)Oilburner just said "eeewwwww!!!!"
It always amazed me how much noise those little things can make when they get a little older and hungry. There was a nest near the window of the room I grew up in. Every spring sparrows would nest there. No sleeping in until the buggers learned to fly.~k
LOL! Yep. We've had birds nest in the bushes behind the house and have listened to them. Double glazing and storm windows have helped. I'm interested to see how loud these little suckers are when we enter/exit the back door. I think the entire family will be disappointed when they learn to fly as the screens will be fixed immediately. They don't get my hammock much longer. ;)
How cool! YOu are bird parents!
