When Enemies Abound ...

"When enemies abound it is best to lay still and be quiet."

That's one thing I learned from observing these newly-hatched chicks.  One moment they were calling out loudly for their mom to bring them food, but the moment they saw me, in a split second they remained still and quiet.  That's how I was able to take this shot.

More pictures of these lovely birds after the jump.

They must have been really hungry.

After being away for a month and a half, this is what greeted me when I got back home - newly hatched chicks not high up on a tree but on eye level.

In just a few days, it began to develop feathers.

One rainy morning the mom had to keep them company.  It even made a roof made out of dried leaves over the nest.  It was raining everyday here in Davao during that time.

I had to leave for the weekend to visit Dumaguete, when I got back, they were ready to fly!  Luckily I still caught the second chick just before it was going to take that leap of faith.  Mom was just a meter away patiently waiting while egging on her baby to finally fly.

If you noticed, there's an addition to the roof which is made of plastic.  I suspect the hand of our househelp.  They love these birds.  They watch over them everyday as well.    


Recently, my creative juices had been sucked dry by this new app called Draw Something.  Remind me to find time for this blog.  I love this blog.  I won't give it up no matter what.  (^o^)/
