BABY BIRDS

I HAD THE PRIVILEGE  to watch this family of white-plumed honeyeaters for 10 days, from early feeding to fully fledged.  The parents worked so hard, protecting the pretty ball shaped nest from large birds like ravens and kites, constantly bringing food and standing guard. 

The nest was visible from the couch so i was constantly running out with the camera, or simply watching through the window with the zoom lens.   The night after the chicks ventured out onto a branch was a wild windy night after a 40 deg day so i'm watching to see if they're still around.   Nature is tough.
