The babies are here!

Well, 3/4 anyways. They hatched sometime between yesterday evening and early this afternoon. It's amazing that they were all scrunched up in those little eggs. They are already hopping around and following the mom and dad around.

I didn't even notice until I zoomed on this last picture that the egg is cracking. The sun was bright and the mama and daddy bird weren't too happy about me taking pictures of their new arrivals. There are probably four babies out there now!

Oh your ababies are so much cuter than mine! Mine are very ugly. That is cool...the cracking egg. The link you put up said they walk around out of the "nest " right away.

Awww, they are so cute!! We didn't get that close to ours, they were walking in the yard, so we didn't disturb them. I love that you can see the 4th egg cracking, that is so cool!! Spring really is cool!!
