    Those chicks are amazing – in our house the adults are referred to as square chickens! Another fun shot of yours. Well done.

  • Thank you very much!

    WOW!!! I can tell by the number of babies that these birds are firm believers of “Cheaper by the Dozen!” This is outstanding! LOVE it!! xoxo!

  • I couldn’t fit all the babies into one shot, they were all spread out! I found their nest recently, but I know from experience not to get too close to their babies… =)

    Oh cute man. Nice shot to get them all together.

  • They are there every day now but when they see me, they think I am going to feed them or attack them. So I try to avoid!
