From Fluff to Feathers

Our four little Ash-throated Flycatchers are growing quit well inspite of the perishing heat we've had during the last few weeks. It's almost a month now since Momma began laying her eggs, and about a week and a half since we first spotted little gray fuzzy things in the nest.

The chicks have been kept nourished with the help of their parents, and we suspect an aunt is also in on the project.

As their feather begin to grow and their beaks harden up, we can expect them to be learning to fly quite soon now. In the meantime, they just rest, eat, and keep a wary eye on me as I stick my camera in their faces.

Life's really good here at Hog Heaven.
