VERY cool. Reminds me a little of one of my favorite essays:

Good luck!

oh they are so cute, we're all pulling for them. So glad you were able to give them a refuge.

KatDoc said...

oh, just look at them! So cute and so wonderful that they are doing well!

I love the little blue feet.

Maybe they are cold. Should we knit them some socks? ;)

~Kathi, who is doing a nest check today

Do you see the missing feathers on top of the third one's head?? It looks like he got attacked and barely squeaked away!

I think socks would be nice. Ruthie? Or Trixie?

This morning I can't find them.
But I don't see any indication of struggle, being eaten,....
Could it be the parents have taken them somewhere else? Or they've maybe now flown?

It is amazing how fast chicks gain strength and mobility once out of the nest. We will all hope that the parents got them to a safer place.

Wonderful!

I would like to include this, and the previous post in the next edition of I and the Bird, which I am hosting, if it's alright with you.

God, I love chikadees, they are so rambunctious and always moving.

A feast for the eyes and for the soul. Thanks for the follow-up.

It seems the parent birds are feeding this beauty.

Trixie said...

Too cute and kind of cranky!

Texas Travelers said...

Way too cool.
Great photos.

I try to visit regularily, but don't always leave comments. Too many good blogs and so little time.

Alaska Sunday is Posted.
Come visit,

Should be 1 . 2. 3. awww! What a cutie this chickadee is!

Mary said...

I hope these 3 made it! How very cute to start life so badly.

Nina,

Now do you understand why I didn't put nesting boxes on my property? Yeah, I got lazy to do it but the main reason is because of the Hosp around here. I appreciate the conversations on your previous posts because I learn a lot in this blogging world. Dealing with HOSP is unpleasant, for sure. I'm sorry you had to witness the massacre but I'm so glad you were able to photograph the survivors!

Yay!

Mary

YAY!
I want to sing "I Will Survive"!

Marvin said...

Congratulations on your rescue. The trio has probably matured enough to move on.

In general, deciding when and how to intervene in natural events deserves ample consideration, but the case against HOSP is obvious to me.
