Flycatchers have young





I heard chirping and screaming out of the nestbox of the flycatchers.
The parents are feeding.
I posted this afternoon to get a better glimpse.
The male is mostly watching as she is flying with the snacks.
The first photo is the male, the others showing the female.

Nuthatch young








Some days ago I got a last view on the nuthatch babies peeking through the hole.
Almost ready.
The next day I heard a thump.
Fluffy heard it too and ran immediately to the window.
A bird.
Flying against the glass.
I looked outside.
And there it sat...
A baby nuthatch.
Sitting on the ground and I wondered what to do next.
I grabbed my camera.
The nuthatch sat for a while and then started moving.
He climbed up to the wall.
with his sharp nails he could do so.

He managed to sit on the bench.
For me a great view on the birdy.
So cute little bird.
He tried to doze for a while
and then fully awake he suddenly took his wings!

Flapp 26

(continuing story Flapp)

'I never knew my ears were so funny' said Flapp.
Untill I saw how funny they were on you!
Thank you for letting me know.
They are very good funny ears, I see now.'
Rabbit looked at him puzzled.
'Did I tell you?'
They both smiled at each other with a big grin.
and gave each other a big hug.

Flapp 25

(continuing story Flapp)

'I can hear again! 'said Flapp relieved.
'Me too!', said Rabbit, with a deep sigh.
'You have fantastic ears...I would keep them if they were also good in hearing', he added.
Flapp said: 'My ears were amazing on you. I think I like them much better now.
When they dance and jump that means they are very happy.
How foolish of me to be angry at them'.

'Yes you are right!, said Rabbit.
And I love my ears, being straight and tight, very alert and doing exactly what they need to do...Good listening and hearing!'

Flapp 24

(continuing story Flapp)

Rabbit however being very astonished, saw Flapp coming!
He grabbed Flapp by his arm and pulled him over.
Flapp being very astonished as well, looked at him with great eyes,
hardly unable to believe that Rabbit was there.
He understood that talking was not an option before they changed ears first.
So that's what they did.

Nuthatch babies








The nuthatch has babies.
At least I saw 5 little beaks screaming for a refill.
Its a lovely sound though..this screaming, like a little concert.
Every time one of the babies peaks outside to see when mom is coming and to be the first for the snack she is bringing.
A lovely sight!

Flapp 23

(continuing story Flapp)

Very discouraged Flapp went home after his visit to the restaurant.

He was pondering, 'My ears were maybe not as bad that I thought they were.
They were nice on Rabbit, when they danced and bounced everywhere.
Very annoying also when you don't want them to dance, but at least they are good ears...
They can hear very sharp!'

He did not see Rabbit sitting on on a trunk, when he passed.

Flapp 22

(continuing story Flapp)

Very disappointed Rabbit sat down to eat his meal.
but he was not hungry anymore.
With long teeth he ate the chips he always so loved.
'Something is missing with those ears he muttered.
They don't hear'.
'And I was so happy with those jumping, dancing ears.
They were so gorgeous!'
'I wonder how Flapp is doing'...

Flapp 21

(continuing story Flapp)

Rabbit awoke from his sleep and rubbed his eyes.
It was already dark!
He felt his stomach rumbling, so he ran to a nearby snackbar to get something to eat.
When he had to pay, he did not hear what was said...
'Heh, what did you say?'
It took a while that he understood that he misunderstood.
'What's wrong with those ears?' he said.
'They do not hear and listen quite as good as my own.'

Flapp 20

(continuing story Flapp)

When Flapp awoke, his stomach was rumbling.
He hurried to a nearby restaurant for a good warm meal and to feast on his ears.
The waiter asked hm; 'What would you like to eat?'
A bit confused, Flapp said: What? what are you saying?
The waiter repeated his question; Can I help you? What would you like to eat or drink?
'This is weird, thought Flapp, What's wrong? I don't hear a thing.
What's wrong with my ears?
It's my ears... I mean Rabbits ears...He panicked.

Flapp 19

(continuing story Flapp)

Flapp too sat down under a tree to rest
and to take a little nap.
He dreamed about being the champion, winning the first prize!
