10 days old



What a difference a day makes. Up until today the young chicks slept most of the time except when they were feeding. But today they have been alert, active and for the first time, they seem to be very interested in observing the world outside their nest.
“The unknown is the province of the student;
it is the field for his life's adventure,
and it is a wide field full of beckonings"...Lincoln Steffens

Faye, this series of pictures and your writings would make such a delightful little children's book!

I love the angelic crown of tiny feathers that formed on the bird in the 3rd pic. Seems like an angel of protection.
I was thinking about all you have learned in doing this project, usually we just see them come and go.

What an amazing series of pictures here Faye. I can't wait to get home and show these to my daughter Erin.

What a treat to find your journal! We have little ones in nests all around us but we can't see them this way. I enjoyed your wonderful paintings as well!

All of your shots are so amazing, but I adore the first of that eager little mouth...and that beautiful light.
