Adorable!! These are precious and amazing, Ellen, made me smile!
Glad that you liked them, Donna. Crazy how they just flop around at this stage.
Lovely, photo! How old would the chicks be?
Thank you, Belinda! Just guessing, 2 to 3 weeks…they start out nearly naked and now have a good start on feathers, but they were quite “floppy.”
Beautiful photo! A sight that I’ve never seen. How lucky you are! 🙂
Thanks, Rebecca! I sure am, and nice that this nest is close to the pond edge. Fingers crossed that none of them fall out of the nest.
