Here's what I found in the chickadee nestbox this morning at 7:30 -- two newly hatched chicks!
I'm keeping my fingers crossed that the last 3 eggs will hatch too. We're supposed to have nice, sunny weather for the next 3 days -- just what these little babies will need to get a good start on their life.
I'm going to leave the nest alone now for a few days......
UPDATE - JUNE 16, 2009:
There are 4 baby chickadees in the nest box now (one of the eggs didn't hatch). The parents are busy flying in and out taking care of them.
