The bottom photo is what the chicks looked like at 6 days. And only 48 hours later (top photo), they are getting feathers and have grown so rapidly; they are almost spilling out over the edge of the nest!
“You must not know too much or be too precise or scientific about birds and trees and flowers and watercraft; a certain free-margin, and even vagueness - ignorance, credulity - helps your enjoyment of these things”...Henry David Thoreau

I just came across your site, I love your series of robin eggs hatching. What a treat to witness such an incredible event. You did such a good job catching such moments. Hatching, feeding, I'm sure you'll get them taking first flight next! I hope it is all a safe journey.
Now, you get to paint some, the nest and blue eggs are amazing. Good luck, thanks for sharing and being so diligent!
