Baby Bird Update

Look how much they have grown from the ugly littly bobs at the bottom of the nest. They take up all the room now and have lots of feathers. The father bird is glossy black but these ones look more like the Momma bird with flecks of brown - almost like they are a cross between a blackbird and and thrush. I suppose such cross breeding is a possibility. Before we know it the nest will be empty and these little guys will have flown away but it has been such a wonderful journey watching them grow. At times wondering if they were actually alive and then seeing them get stronger and stronger. Full time job for the parent birds. and the father bird still doesn't quite trust me. If he sees me at the kitchen window he won't go into the nest to feed the babies until I step back out of his view
