Baby Birds

Remember I wanted to photograph the tiny brown speckled eggs I found in the nest dear our driveway.  Well too late, look what has happened.  Tiny baby birds ooh my heart flutters, I love baby anything and baby birds oh so sweet.  Mum was off fossicking for breakfast when I shot this.  I am really cautious because I don't want to frighten her way.  I read somewhere a long time ago that if the bird smells the humans who have touched the nest they leave.  I'd seriously have to hand feed these babies then.  So carefully I take little quick peeks now and then.
 The tiniest little cheeps can be heard and the mouths open upward and mum flies in with a beak full of goodies for them.  It is instinct at it's finest.  Survival of the tiniest little things.
Just after I took this in came mum, giving me the evil eye and feeding the little ones.  I love nature like this.  It is amazing.  Can you see the little threads of white fluffy stuff in the nest, it looks like stuffing from a pillow, I wonder where she found it.  I want to keep this nest when the little ones fly away, a sweet memory of these tiny babies growing up here.
