Keeping the Chicks Alive
2 chicks are fed by a parent just outside the window of my home office here in Blarney.
The chicks have been there all evening and I just looked out again and they’re still there. Unfortunately the neighbour’s cat, Patches, saw them too and is keeping a vigil close by. We saw the parent bird literally dive bomb the cat several times but Patches won’t be moved.
A moment before this shot was taken the first chick was fed. I have a photo of that too but I thought this was the better one.
Is it common for young birds to huddle together on a wire in the shelter of a house? It troubles me that they might be in danger or injured and can’t fly away. Anyone know?
