Mme Merle's family have finally flown the nest. I thought you might like to see a couple of more photos showing the fledglings at a week old and then fully fledged at two weeks. Mum will go on feeding them for another 3 weeks.
M.Merle was nowhere to be found, so we do not know if he was just a lazy father or if something happened to him. Nevertheless, Mme Merle did a wonderful job in raising her four little ones. God's creation is just amazing!
Enjoy your week!
