EGG-CELLENT NEWS!

The third and final Northern Cardinal egg hatched today... exactly 12 days from when the mother laid it. I am happy to report that all 3 birds are doing well and the 2 from yesterday are becoming active. I managed to get a quick shot and this short vid while mom was away. I like to get in and out of there as quickly as possible... but the thought of a short vid was too hard to resist.

They are so half-ripened, alien and wonderful.
Great shorty video of the three of 'em squirming around in that pretty nest.

They are so helpless! Wow, such giant eyeballs and heads too big to lift--heh, like a human baby =)

Oh. My. Cuteness. Maybe they'll grow to like macadamia nuts, too! :-)
