4 chicks in a huddle!

May 21, 2017 in In the Nest Box

2017.0521-001The group on average is now about 9 days old and going strong!  This is a late afternoon photo with late day light streaming into the nest box.  The female is watching over her brood and they remain in a tight huddle formation!

The chicks have grown visibly over last 9 days but remained covered in white down with pink patches of skin still showing through in some areas.
