BZ, Gin reminded us of a good point about bright light on/in babies’ eyes. It has also been mentioned that it is best not to use a flash camera on young babies – Gin, is this before their eyes are open or after?
Anyway, congrats BZ on your successful 2nd fledging here in Missouri. My pair only have 3 eggs in their 2nd nest right now (had another 5 eggs in mid-May but mama left & eggs were not incubated, thus no good). First fledglings are here eating mostly on their own now – parents will probably kick them out after this 2nd brood are born or fledged.
