Mockingbird baby—? days old.  by dutchothotmailcom

Mockingbird baby—? days old.

Before I left camping I found this bird nest in my neighbors hedge. I questioned why there. The nest is at eye level and everyone that does their morning walk will pass it. The hedge is not that full and has multiple escape routes visible for the mom and dad. So, this morning I was curious if the eggs ( 4 ) had hatched. Nobody was on the nest when I arrived and was able to take a few handheld shots .
The nest is at eye level but to look down into the nest I had to angle my camera above my head. So my shooting was random and hoping for the best.
As you can see the eggs has hatched and the babies are very young.
I hope to take more shots in upcoming days . Don’t want to disturb their lives. It would be neat to see them growing up. The nest is so close with easy access...
Awesome shot! You did well to angle that above your head!

Great shot, looks like they will be getting aching jaws with those wide open beaks! I guess it's who shouts loudest, or opens widest!

Reminds me of a Bible verse I have framed... this photo would be perfect with it! "I am the Lord your God... open wide your mouth and I will fill it..." from Psalm 81.
