baby flycatcher2

baby grey flycatchers

The eggs of the grey flycatcher have hatched...
I saw the parents feeding, so that meant there is new life in the nest.
I had a quick look.

and small...
little beaks no bigger than 0,5 mm.
So on the photo they look even bigger.
So fragile... naked with few fuzzy feathers,
yet full of life when the little beaks suddenly open up.
