    I thought you might enjoy these babies. They are Lady Gouldian finches.

    Last week hubby brought me the nest box (top pic). I didn’t know what I’d see when I opened it - a snake or lizard maybe? No, 5 babies!

    I was shocked because I thought that pair had quit breeding. Today they fledged - but only as far as the coconut shell 4 inches from their nest! :roflmao: That’s the bottom left photo. There’s always one adventurous baby - middle photo, he’s way down on the aviary floor.

    And the right photo is just some other babies eating. Sorry it’s so messy. I promise I changed the paper earlier!

    Funny thing. There are 2 slightly older babies in the flight, maybe 2 months old. They kept staring into (what I thought was) the empty nest box. Then today they were trying to get in the coconut shell with them. I’ll bet before this is all over they will help feed the babies.

    I meant to color band those 2 and move them out. They don’t fit with any group.

    I love them!! Once at my local bird store I saw some that were blue with white faces- I thought it was the coolest thing! Never seen any like them before!
