Nest box news 4

It is a week since the eggs hatched and the six chicks have made a lot of progress.  They spend most of the time asleep and still have their eyes closed but they have been cheeping since Thursday.  These photos show how they have grown in the past week.

Both parents are now bringing in food and the mother is happy to leave the chicks for longer.  The size of caterpillars being brought in has increased as they have grown.  This the father bringing in a caterpillar this morning but having difficulty deciding which chick to feed it to.
