John and I went on a late afternoon hike today (pics soon) and I realized I forgot to check on the nest today. So when we got back, I stuck the camera up in the tree to have a peek inside. Yes... they've hatched... well 2 of 3 have. They look so fragile without feathers.

Because the camera really distorts the scale, I stood as high as I could on my tip toes and looked in. There they were... softly breathing and fast asleep... and no bigger than 3/4 of an inch. Look at how giant their eye sockets are. Maybe #3 will hatch tomorrow. CUTE!

OK... They look a bit scary...but in a cute way. Right?
I'm a sucker for a baby bird.
