they sure are fast this year ... makes Little Sumo last year seem like he was there for ages!

They really are changing fast. They are so much darker than they were two days ago.

Mom has them all in the nest box for the night and she is there standing guard over them as always and they are snuggled up under her.

I love this mom, she is so devoted to them!  :-*

Moonstar, the chicks are wandering around in front of the nest box.

Here are pics of one of the chicks for you.  He/she was busy eating something just below the nest box, and kept disappearing.

Not to worry Moonstar...I just checked and they are out on the ledge that's in front of the nestbox area.

I have not checked this site in a few days.  Today I was shocked. No chicks in the box and I can't see where they are in the refreshed part.  Anyone know how things are here.  Do they come back to the nest box after they wander around?

Hilarity ensues here today!  The chicks are in and out of the box now and big sister and I mean BIG sister is watching it all from the box.  She's sitll pretty white but the boys are turning brown fast - especially one of them, he's looking like the first born I'm thinking.  They are at head bobbing stage and it's adorable to watch them get so excited exploring and seeing their little bobbing heads  :-* :-*

Even now as big as the mini sumo's are getting, mom still stands over them in the nest box especially at night.  They are huddled together against her chest, such a great family  :-* :-*

Last year one of the parents always spent the night in there with little Sumo.  Sumo would snuggle up to the parent.  It was so cute.

I see their new jewelry now, one little one is really dark now...I bet he's a boy!  He's brown and black and white!  :-*  Anxious to hear what they have!

Edit to add:  Just went to check and mac has posted that there are 3 males and 1 female!!

The four chicks and a parent today. Bree and Big Sumo did a wonderful job of raising Sumo last year, and they are doing an equally great job of raising their four chicks this year.
