Whistling Kite Young

Vistited some Whisling Kites that I haven't seen for a few months and happy to see that it looks like they have reared three chicks.

Grainy and from a long away away but sure is cute.

Naww, what a cutie. smiley Second one is just fantastic!


Great parents, very hard work keeping three of them well fed.

Agree with windshear, #2 is a classic.

Great stuff, top pics.

 I have just located a Whistling kite nest and am hoping to document in photos the raising of some chicks over the coming breeding season smiley

Oh very cute indeed.  Boy, three young ones, that would have been a hard slog for mum & dad keeping up with food for them.  There's something very endearing about "big" babies, moving towards their parents' size but still dependant on them for a lot.  These are fantastic Rick, just wonderful.

I wish you luck too saturnv78, that would be a great event to observe.
