Birth at the Pond

Well the Moorhens strutted their stuff this morning bringing their 6 new babies on to solid ground!!  The last 6 were in attendance helping herd the new youngsters... and EVERYONE was hungry!


(any idea's for 6 names??  The Brady Bunch? lol)


everyone here thought it incredible that the other 6 all survived and now they are helping with the new 6 !! (the first 6 can't even fly yet!)

First come first serve with the bread!

(below)...3 day old Moorhen baby.

I REALLY love the one where you can see 6 little heads right there next to the Mommy...! But every one of these pictures is a Gem!
These Moorhens are very prolific...! (lol)

I love the colors of these birds. The bright red against the black looks really cool. The beak on the adult is so odd looking. Almost looks like she is wearing a mask.

I'm worried too. I was just thinking about you the other day and realizing I hadn't seen a post in awhile. Hope you are okay!!
