Once hidden in an apple tree, a lovely nest of 4 mockingbird chicks grows louder every day, drawing attention from endless predators. At this stage the chicks are mostly mouth! Mom and dad are constantly busy feeding and defending their gang. We barely survived their attacks as we took a quick photo yesterday afternoon.
Here they are this morning, twice as big as yesterday. Look carefully for 4 heads. My husband is taking these photos because he is taller.
