First Day Out!

The Blue Faces Parrot Finch babies left the nest today. They have disappeared into the bushes and I’ve only seen one briefly. Hopefully in the coming days as they get used to the flight and get more confident they’ll come out of hiding.

This is one of the adults. They love to scurry about in the low branches of the bushes in their planted flight area. They are so active and have such a well established planted flight it is difficult to photograph them – they have far too much cover to escape into!
