Moorhen Family

Well, the Moorhens are sure on the move faster then any other time!  It must be because they have the 3 remaining first  kids to babysit!  No matter why, they are out and about with the newborns much sooner then I have ever seen them before and to watch 2 generations is a treat..

Here's Mama with her new brood..

(those little red heads crack me up)

this last one shows one of the older brothers .. (or sister)

The big Blue Heron came by .. mama Moorhen told him, in no uncertain terms, to "stay far away"!

I didn't realize the Moorhens have one group of babies right after another...Pretty amazing...!
I love how attentive they are to their little ones. People could learn a lot about Parenting from Birds and Anumals.
