Firstly - new life!

A baby budgie just born this afternoon.  The eggs are about the size of my ring finger nail.  This little bird is so tiny and fragile.  If it survives - and survival isn't easy for baby birds - we will hand raise!  So more photo opportunities.  By tomorrow more babies may be born.  Such an exciting time.  Our cockatiels have also laid eggs and there is a crack in one of them - unsure if this is cause for excitement or not.  Will know more tomorrow.
