Back to more mundane things. Wagtails preparing to fly

After a week away, it was good to be able to get back to some familiar territory, and we set out to visit Jimmy, Karen, and Ginger.  Took us awhile to locate one of the adults, but no sign of the other one nor Ginger. But given the shrewdness of these little birds sometimes that is not surprising.

Did find our one hard working pair of Wagtails had their young but a few days from flying.

They are now so active, and the nest is really not enough to contain such rapidly growing and hyperactive littleuns.

A couple more days should see them on the wing. Hope so before the really hot spell of weather sets in again.

What a difference a week makes.  They were tiny little waving  necks the last time we met.

Somehow or other the adult is able to distinguish between the begging and choose the right one to receive the goodies.
