Remember the cedar waxwing nest I wrote about this month? Marcy Cunkelman sent me an update this morning.
The eggs hatched more than a week ago and the parents have been busy feeding the nestlings.
All those trips to the fruit bushes have paid off. Three healthy youngsters are tall enough now to be seen in the nest. They have yellow wrinkled “baby” beaks and crests that look like bad toupees.
It won’t be long before they fly.
Keep growing, little guys. Your”hair” will look better soon.
