They are out!

The day finally came and my bird is now a mom to two little chicks!

She's started spending more time away from the nest though that is certainly no indication that she's forgotten them. I have to only cast my eye around to see her lurking around, keeping an eye on the little ones even as she feeds.

Its amazing how instincts kick in... no sooner the mother goes, the chicks duck down and keep absolutely still in her absence, its only once in a way that there is any sign of life - most of the time, its just a blob of gray.

Looking forward to seeing them in a week or so...


  1. wow!!! :D congrats to the new mother! :)

  2. Aww.. that's such a wonderful news! And those chicks look so cute *even though I can't see their faces*.. =D

    And yep, what you say is very true. The bulbul chicks used to do the same as soon as their mom or dad left after feeding. They know naturally to duck and keep a low profile.

    Thanks a lot for sharing.

  3. @ Mak's and Chavie: Thanks guys...

    @ Harumi: Will keep posting more pics
