Nuthatch chicks

The nuthatch chicks are now a week old. There were five to begin with, but now we're down to two, although the final pair do seem to be doing quite well. They look quite a bit larger now.


  1. What happened to the other three? Too cold?

  2. No idea. It's not been particularly cold since they hatched. It's just that there was one less chick each morning. The parents have both been quite aggressive at times. These last two seem to be quite established now, though, with feathers beginning to form.
