Day 7 since birds hatched. The mom bird is doing a great job raising 5 little ones. Their so cramped in the little nest and it weights down the tree limbs. One of the little birds had fallen out or was accidentally knocked out by mom and was on one of the branches outside the nest. It survived and I placed a piece of card board under the branch to stabilize it. I've decided not post daily to avoid disturbing them too often and possibly scarring mom away.

Day 14 since birds hatched. All 5 birds looking healthy and are more alert. When I approach the nest they are watchful and a little weary and mom doesn't appreciate the intrusion.

Day 12 of birds hatching. I'm so impressed with this small bird who manages to feed 5 baby birds. They are growing fast and healthy and I can see wings and feathers.

Day 6 of bird hatching. All eggs are hatched but only 5 of 6 birds survived. 1 bird died shortly after hatching. It wouldn't have done well as it was suffering from birth defects. But the 5 brothers/sisters carry on trying to hold up their big fat heads. Funny little birds!

Day 2 of birds hatching. I think 4 of the 6 eggs have hatched. It's hard to tell because  I don't dare touch them. I did count 3 beaks for sure and I seen 2 unhatched eggs. Stay tuned for day 3
