Hatched.

I had to climb on the side of my Jeep to get close to the nest. (It's under the carport.) I was a little concerned that she might peck at my eyes for getting so close. She didn't. Instead she sat very proudly while I photographed her new babies.  



Happy Mother's Day!

I can't believe she let you get so close. Wonderful shots! Thanks for sharing.

Glad you enjoyed! I saw one of the babies stretch his wings this morning.

What great pictures. Almost like Amby's Wild Kingdom. How did you get them to build the nest in a hanging basket?

And what a proud Mom.
