The small chick has now been left on its own. It has been looking a little lonely. Fortunantely Mum is still coming back to give it the occasional feed.

Last picture of the 2 chicks together. Shortly after this the larger chick left the nest

Biggest bird keeps getting up on the windows - think he will definitely go today - the other one does not look big enough as his wings are not as developed. there are also lots of little maggot things in the box.
Excitement as a little brown bird tries to look in the box and the mother hisses at it.

Birds are really progressing now. Very noisy and all over the box. The little one is sitting under the hole with their mouth open!!
Several good pictures today.

Both chick are progessing well - one is quite a way behind the other developmentally - but is the noisier of the two. Lets hope they do not abandon the little one if the bigger one fledges first. I do not think they will fledge tomorrow
