First Clutch

Depending on how I look at it, this is the 1st clutch or 3rd clutch for the year. First 2 clutches were not fertile. One thing about the advise of not disturbing the breeding birds appears to be quite obvious. 2 chicks were thrown out of the nest after a visit by my wife's colleagues. But then the 2 chicks that were trown out were the smaller and weaker ones. Could also be a natural instinct of the parents to weed out the weaker birds. I can only guess. One died immediately and one a few hours later. And as usual, such things normally happens when I am not around :(

But the good news for me is that 2 survived and is now being handfed. They appear strong and should survive the ordeal.... hopefully ;)
