The feeding frenzy continues with both Adam
and Eve bringing in the groceries.
Mi and Mishado hear a new sound. It is
Saturday and the Ice Cream man is in the neighborhood
Eve Leaves as Adam arrives, but the
wind has moved the camera again and you know what that means. Adam is upset
The first rain for Mi and Mishado. Eve
keeps the chicks covered and with her wings extended over the edge of the
nest the nest remains dry.
Did You Know:
chicks and all songbird chicks are born helpless and naked. This is called
the Altricial species. This species lays fewer eggs and usually off the
ground and away from many predators, plus the male will help feed and care
for the chicks. Chickens, ducks and geese, lay many more eggs which hatch
on the ground but incubation takes much longer and when they are hatched,
they are not helpless but more mature than their Altricial cousins. They
are of the Precocial species.
