Willie Wagtail babies

We're grandparents!

Four little babies are snuggled into this nest. The nest is so close to the ground that foxes or other creatures about that size could easily take the babies. It has no protection from the elements and we have had storm after storm the last couple of nights.

The parents are very protective and look and act quite fierce when we walk past. I don't think they could fight off something which really wanted baby bird for dinner though. Posted by Picasa
