‘Ugly-Bug’ Jackdaw Chicks

When I found my jackdaw nest last weekend, I think the chicks were just a few days old. Although the camera set-up in this nest box is not particularly good, it is still good to watch this new family. There are three chicks who are growing fast and being fed well by the two parents. Today, the camera had been knocked and was not longer facing the chicks. This nest box is easy to access and the parents leave the box for quite long periods of time looking for food, so it is easy to nip up the ladder.

I waited until the parent left and climbed up to the nest, this time with my camera! Pressing the camera back into place, I held the camera inside the box and took a few quick shots so I could see exactly what these chicks are looking like now…
