a fresh beetle for lunch:
Are these birds in some sort of protected area? It would seem that the little chick would be taken by a dog or cat or some other predator since it appears to be on the open ground and can't fly.
Now that is a cute baby.... 8)
Great shots. So cute. They look so different than what they will become as they grow.
These birds are feeding just on the side of the road. The parents are ok with me being from 25-40 ft away. One went for a lady who was not as close as I, I think it was her pink shirt. They watch me for a moment, then go back to feeding and eating, which is a sign they are comfortable with the situation. Yes, a raptor could take the baby, but he'd have to chance the long bill of the parents.
I've had adults walk up to me, I could almost pet them.
Great shots Harris!!
I'm sort of stealing myself to the baby not making it simply because so few do, especially in such an exposed situation.
Sorry, sounds morbid and pessimistic and, of course, I'm hoping like heck the chick does make it and that you continue to provide us with these wonderful images so we can share the chick's growth vicariously.
