Willie Wagtail update

My how the babies have grown!
In a week they've gone from featherless scrawny creatures to almost fully fledged birds. Another week and they'll have flown away.

A couple of years ago we watched babies grow, surviving snakes, weather, foxes etc only to see them be devoured by kookaburras on the day they learnt to fly and left their nest for little flight forays.

So, so sad. I can't look at Kookaburras in quite the same way as I once did. Posted by Picasa
