We've been following these little sparrow babies from the egg state to newly born without any feathers at all, to this state - very soon ready to try their wings.
The mother and father is so eager to feed them and they flies out and in with food to these, always very hungry, little creatures. The nest is always at the same spot, year after year, on the top floor's balcony in my mother in laws master bedroom.
It's such a beautiful little world up there and I love how they come back year after year after the winter excursion to warmer climate.
UPDATE - I just went and looked at them, five minutes after this post, and they were ALL gone! We were so lucky to take a photo of them just a couple of hours before their new life, flying in the air.
