That's a pretty darn good lookin' fuzzy picture to me. TOO sweet. You guys that have these birds as pets have a really good vantage point from which to watch the whole process.
I know with my birds, one, because it is so cold here right now and two, they are in a loft, for the most part keep their babies covered 24/7.

Even if I do happen up on a pair feeding, most of time, ESPECIALLY if I have my camera, they will stop feeding and cover the babies right away.

Now if I DON'T have the camera, sometimes I can just stand and watch them feed the babies. I think they do it on purpose to irritate me. :rolleyes:
My guys are so used to seeing me with my camera, it doesn't even phase them. :p

I don't get right up in their face when they're feeding the babies, but I have been in the aviary attempting to get a picture & they just keep on feeding. I do keep a fairly good distance though, out of respect for the most part.

Terrific updates, Cindy!!

Can't wait until Chuck gets to see them...I DO hope he greets you FIRST before running out to the aviary! :p ;) :rolleyes:

Do you think you and Chuck will be able to come up with names while he's home??? No pressure, of course...;)

LOL!

I hope so to but you just might want to keep some distance just in case. I would probably stay away fom the door.

It's one thing walking into one ;) but getting hit by an opening door could really leave a mark.

The pictures are great!

I doubt it. I haven't even given it any thought yet.
With Frank & Jesse's babies, it was Bonnie & Clyde from day one. Wanted to stay with the 'outlaw' theme. :p

Sadie & Sam were about three weeks old when I named them.

** The pictures are great!
* I'm assume you're referring to the famous sliding glass door incident? LOL!!
Let me tell ya, running into one leaves a pretty good mark as well. :p
Believe it or not, my forehead still hurts. :p

** What's really scary, is that I forgot I had just closed it. :rolleyes:

Congratulations on the two little bundles, Cindy! :) I bet you were quite surprised when this happened but ready and willing to accept two new, beautiful birds to your little flock. :)

They are precious!

* Thanks, Brad.

** Surprised is putting it mildly. :p
When I found the half a shell, I honestly couldn't imagine where it came from. After all, I always check the baskets. :eek:
The shell had to have been carried to where I found it. Then I found the other half across from where I found the first half. Neither were near any of the baskets. I never did find the second shell.

No question about it, they became members of the family as soon as they hatched. Believe me, they're not going anywhere. ;)

* I appreciate the compliment, Christin. :)

** Maybe one will be good enough to enter in this year's state fair.
A picture of Mikko, the babies grandpa, received an honorable mention at the 2006 state fair.

Great pictures! I only have one complaint.
Every time I post a picture thread, I get like a few comments. Then somebody posts babies we all have to run right over and coo.
I've had several great picture posts, hijacked by a sudden baby announcement with pictures. *sigh*

Lol I'm just kidding. Someday I will have baby pictures.

Wow Cindy - I have just caught up on this thread - have to agree with everyone's posts - the more pictures the better :D No chance of mine having babies so I do just love watching babies grow up (vicariously of course). You are very talented with the camera - just seem to know exactly when the snap that shutter. The shot of the baby with his/her eyes nearly open is adorable - looks to be smiling (can understand why seeing where s/he's living ;) ). Looking forward to the daily photos!

It's really pretty much luck. Some turn out, some don't.
Either way, I love photographing my birds & sharing those photos.

** No worries there, I'll be posting at least one picture a day to share the babies progress with the group. :)
Now that I detect some feathers beginning, picture taking becomes even more fun. :p

Day 6, Getting as big as Mom

We're having a very cloudy, rainy day, which I'm loving. Unfortunately these aren't ideal conditions for taking pictures. However, I'll take the rain & deal with the conditions accordingly. :p

I was able to get a quite shot of the babies eating this morning.
They're really starting to flap their wings.


Sadie Has Her Beak Full :p

"Would you like to say Hi to all the nice people at Pigeon Talk"
"I sure would. Hi everyone"
