Feed me x 5

Those are the blackbird babies. I believe all five eggs hatched. You can see the 5th one tucked down in the middle of the rest. It was kinda hard to get a good pic because I can't see into the nest, so I just had to hold the camera up there and guess. Of course they were moving, too, and I didn't want to disturb them for too long, so this is the best of the 2 pics I took.

As for the robin eggs, I'm afraid those got abandoned. Something had broken one of the eggs. Poor parents... all that work for nothing!

Speaking of baby birds, check out the 4 newly-hatched peregrine falcons on the live birdcam!

You're on to something with your observation of how quick this all happens. Just watch now how fast they'll be out of the nest.

Actually, I was observing how much time JHRME had until her wedding. Now it's only 5 days!!!!! :)
