Yes and at this stage they need constant feeding. The growth rate is remarkable.

lesmore49,

Thanks for commenting and adding your story. They are a beautiful bird and did seem to be feeding the chicks only worms and insects.

My favorite is the nest with the kittenbirds

I've had encounters with these guys, and they are one of my favorite species because they seem to share their namesake's curiosity, and don't seem to be intimidated by large beings with big clicking eyes.

. . . and they do magic tricks! See these posts from last year.

Scott,

I am glad you enjoyed seeing the nest and chicks. You are right about them not being intimidated by much. Every time we went in or out of the house it sat on the nest and just watched us. It only left the nest if we stopped and looked a while.

I enjoyed seeing your pictures. it was strange to see them eating berries as they are mostly insectivorous.

Patty - These birds are at my daughter's condo in Maine. I expect from the size of the chicks that they will be gone by next weekend.

Mole - Glad you enjoyed the series and thanks for the compliment.
