2 naked young

This morning early I saw the blackbird coming off the nest.
For me an opportunity to have a quick peek.

There were 2 naked baby blackbirds and one unhatched egg.
They must have hatched some days ago I guess,
because the baby-birds fit in no way in the egg that is laying beside.
they are 3 times bigger than the egg!

It is miraculous to see how fast these birds grow.
only on a diet of insects and worm.
