04-30-2023 Four chicks doing well


All four chicks are active and doing well.  Although they hatched in successive days, it is easy to see a size difference between the oldest and youngest.  Rebecca is incredibly patient in feeding these squirming moving targets and they all get plenty to eat. 

There are a couple of video clips of some activity on Sunday morning.  Rebecca leaves to stretch her wings and gather up breakfast.  Kewpee comes to stand guard but seems reluctant to try and sit over the chicks since they are a noisy mass of squirming pointy beaks.  He keeps looking outside as if to say “Where is your mother? She should be back any moment now.” She does return pretty quickly with food and the crowd goes wild!
