Finch Aviary Report 23rd February 2016

Just a short update to my earlier post on the finch aviary. The zebra finches have started to hatch and the Cut Throat Finches have three eggs.

Recently hatched Zebra Finch. There are at least 2 more chicks in the nest but they would not co-operate to get a photo. Cannot photograph from above because the zebras have built such a tight nest with a tight roof and I didn't want to disturb them any more than necessary.

This is the nest of the Cut Throat Finches. Very spartan when compared with the zebras whose nest appears impregnable. This photo taken through the open lid.
