These three chicks really look like Anhingas now, with the classic black and white “piano key” feathers on their wings.
Like the wading bird chicks in nearby nests these older chicks are spending more time interacting with each other as they wait for the parents to bring food. These three were so busy they didn’t even notice when one of the parents was on its approach.
Just as well, because she kept right on going.
I don’t know what made her abort her landing, but she circled around the tree for a second try and successful touch down.

The third photo is simply wonderful Ellen, there’s so much interest in that photo! LOVE it 🙂
Thanks, Liz. It was a busy scene, sometimes you don’t even know where to look there is so much activity.
Sounds very fun and exciting to see all this activity going on!
Can’t deny it: it is fun and sometimes exciting!
So interesting to watch them mature. Wonderful photos Ellen!
And it goes by quick. It won’t be long till these ones try flying–hope to see that. Thanks, Belinda!
