Happy Moment Continues...

I went back to check on the happy grey heron family last week end and the chicks already fledged and able to look for food themselves. On and off they will still go back to their nest and waiting to be fed b their parents. The parents will continue to feed their chicks for another one to two weeks even after they fledged.
Look at this young grey heron already a fully grown adult! It was sun bathing while waiting for parents.
Another sibling back to the nest and join the wait.
After about 10 minutes, the mother heron came back with foods.The mother feed one at a time, both chicks got their fair share.
After the feeding, the mother heron leave the nest to hunt for food and leave the 2 chicks behind. What a beautiful & happy family.
