Less than a week ago there were 3 beautiful, light blue, speckled eggs in this nest. Today there are 3 fuzzy baby birds. The adult birds are bringing fresh insects to fuel the remarkably fast growth process of these little beauties. The parents built this nest fortress in a Teddy Bear Cholla, which has thousands of sharp spines just waiting to pierce the skin of unsuspecting humans. I still have many tiny scars on top of my right foot where a chunk-'o-Cholla met my foot at high velocity last year. Long story. Anyway, it's a very protected place to raise a family. More videos to come as the young birds get to the point of fledging. What intense and stunning golden eyes!
