When last I told you about my baby bird stalking, it was Friday. Not much was happening. That trend continued on Saturday.
Seriously. These are the most sleep-prone baby birds I've ever seen. They never once looked up on Sunday.
I'm pretty sure I could reach in and grab one of them and they wouldn't care. AT ALL.
Monday was another snooze-filled day.
And then I went out of town for a few days. I missed three whole days of baby bird life, which is like a year in bird time. I think. I don't actually know anything about bird calendars and the such.
Today I finally was home during daylight hours, so I took a gander at the three little birds who are 10 days old and the one who is 11 days old (not that I could tell you which one is older, I just know that one is.).
THEY WERE AWAKE! And still didn't care that I was there.
By the way, the one with its mouth open doesn't actually have its mouth open.
I had noticed it before, but now I'm absolutely certain -- it's beak isn't properly formed. It's missing a chunk, which makes it look like it's constantly talking.
My money says they all fly away sometime this weekend.
