Chicks waiting to be fed!

May 13, 2014 in In the Nest Box

Early morning and the chicks are hungry after a long night.  Mother has left the nest and they patiently await her return with a tasty Bluejay for breakfast.  It is fascinating to watch how the mother returns with avian prey and quickly removes all feathers to get at the good stuff!  Almost like she is unwrapping a candy bar!
