before flight

This morning I took my position near the nest, with my coffee, camera on sharp,
to see the flycatchers take off.
I watched motherbird flying on and off a thousand times, with flies and other insects.
Young screaming for food all the time.
and when tired dozing away, taking a short nap, but then suddenly fully awake again, to be able to be the first one, getting the next snack.
When the sun became so hot on their nest, two birds tried to wobbly move to a higher branch in the vine, more in the shade...but jumped back to the nest when it became too wobbly.
But that didn't take long...when they again went up to the branch, meanwhile exersizing their wings..flapping wildly.
