Back to the verdin...
This little couple are amazing. Not fearful of humans, we got to watch them raise their babies. From the time they hatched (we could hear their little crys in the nest) to their first flight we have got to watch them grow. Each night, after they left the nest, the parents would call them back... flying to the babies to the nest, and back and forth for sometimes an hour just to get one little guy back to the nest.
Here are the photographs..
