baby thrashers, week 2

The thrasher chicks are now one week old, and have almost doubled in size.

Their eyes have opened, one was looking at me, then decided to go back to sleep. I didn't get any pics of them with their eyes open.

The adult brown thrasher, Toxostoma rufum (had to slip the Latin name in here somewhere), was less than thrilled with me taking photos of the chicks. I even experienced a low flying thrasher in my hair, fortunately it was a dry run, until I moved away from the nest area.
