A couple of young chicks

It has been about a year since a bird was in the nest in the tree near the master bedroom of my apartment.

An adult bird appeared in the next recently and considering how it stayed during wind, rain, and everything else it was obvious it was a mama sitting on at least one egg.

It turns out it was two.  Sometime in the last 48 hours the baby birds hatched.  And, mom must have been getting them some food when I got home from work tonight because the two babies were alone.  It gave me the opportunity to take a nice little nature photo.

I took this photo about a week ago with the mother bird sitting on it's eggs.
