Thank you Klahanie. It's just wonderful watching them feed. The great news is I have just seen a second chick today. I am just hoping to be lucky enough to get the million $ family shot.

Alan don't be sorry - we all (well most of us) enjoy seeing these kind of pictures.
Did you know GOY has a sister site called I spy a bird?
Are you camping out to get the million $ shot or just snoozing on the deck chair :)

Angie, I seem to remember seeing, " I spy a bird" somewhere now you mention it. Skotkat has also advised me about a site called Trowel Birdforum. Thank you for reminding me.

Angie, I didn't answer your question, I'll be camping out in the garden with my good friend San Miguel. I'll find out in the morning, if it's true what they say .... "it's the early worm that gets the bird"... lol. If I don't get a decent picture by lunchtime, I'll definitely spend the afternoon snoozing in the deckchair.

the capture is fantastic :-)
and to have a family of this type bird in your garden is a very special treat :-) i liked that you shared your joy!

I do hope your friend doesn't lead you astray Alan - Senor Miguel has a rather bad habit of that ;)

Wow lucky you, can see them and hear them in the trees....

Yes every day, it's loving. Despite the chicks being self sufficient, all four of them still visit daily.

How on earth did I miss these? alan, we had one of these in our garden, but not seen him again since then. Such a wonderful thing to see one of these. :)
