Baby birds

I already shared the first photo but the next two are within the last week. It amazed me how fast the birds grew.

I must have caught this photo the day it was born.

This is 8 days later. They were all sleeping. I went back later and saw one with its eyes open.

Understandably the mommy bird is pretty protective. Anytime we step out our front door she flies away to a nearby tree and squacks really loudly. The day I took the last photo Jackson was climbing up the ladder to go up in the playhouse (where the birds are) to go down the slide (the kids haven't noticed the nest yet) and the mommy bird totally dove at him! He was so upset he cried. Then I went up to take the pictures and she dove at me too.
