the mama will protect them
you may want to keep an eye on when they start to stumble around, they often fall from the nest ...if that happens pick them up and put them back in and walk away
Good grief -- good thing you told me, or I would freak out if I saw that!
...we've had hawks that animal protective services cane and trapped.
Hey, BBM, how are you?
Why did they trap them, to protect them?
Update: We've kept out of that part of the yard for, let's see, nearly a week now. I did go back and look on Sat. afternoon, and I could see two big beaks pointing skyward! I have seen Mama and Dad nearby, and I might check again later today. It's raining so they may have a gourmet wormy meal today!
When I go out to look at the nest, I try to act "birdish" and keep all the tips from bird books in mind, about little or no eye contact, look submissive, etc. so I don't seem threatening to Mama. I clasp my hands behind my back, glance around at the ground, preen my shoulder with my chin, and generally try to convey that I'm a large but harmless bird. Buuuuutttttt--- when the neighbors see me doing that, it's off to the looney bin for me!! lol
Plus, we can't go near our lawn chairs, can't enjoy our firepit, and that part of the lawn is getting funky... The things we do for dang birdies!
