0712 bird's nest 06
Originally uploaded by rooruu.
In a brief moment when both parent birds were away, my camera crept through the vines (flash turned off) and this is what it caught. I know very little about baby birds, but these ones look pretty freshly hatched, to me.

If you recognise from the parent birds what sort these might be, please let me know in the comments. For now, mostly, I'm watching, and trying to catch what I can without intruding (yay for zoom, when its focus catches what you want it to catch).

Birds haven't nested in this spot before, to my knowledge. The vines won't get their pruning till the birds are grown and gone.

My goodness! What a very special sight to capture. Absolutely no idea what they are, but I'm thrilled to see your photo of them.
