New Life

I have been working at the kitchen table for the last few days and have been entranced with this mummy bird feeding her babies. On the first day there was only 2, they wouldn't leave her alone screaming at her for food. No exaggeration, she was out there for over 7 hours permanently feeding them. The first photo just about catches the chick with her mouth wide open, behaving like that well known signing orphan Oliver "More!"

The following day she reappeared with four chicks in tow! I suppose 2 must have cracked their shells later - well human babies come late, so why not hey?

Simple pleasures :)
