These babies are getting so LOUD! We can really tell every time their mama is feeding them because they chirp with great excitement that can be heard all over the yard and inside the house, if the door is open.
Once when I looked in the nest, I only saw 2 babies. Then I realized that the third was perched on the back side of the nest. They are so crowded in there now, I guess he was just trying to find a little extra space. :) When he saw me peering at him, he hopped back on top of his siblings! I guess it feels safer in the nest, even if you aren't actually *in* the nest (but rather, on top of it :)).
I think they will be flying away any day now. Probably tomorrow, when it's supposed to be raining and I won't get to watch. :( Maybe they will wait till Friday, but they have all been stretching their wings and getting a lot more mobile. One of them cracked me up today, as I watched him scratching his head with his foot (just like a dog would). I had no idea birds would do that! Wish I had gotten a picture of it!
