Baby wrens

For the third year in a row, a pair of Carolina wrens has nested in the potted Christmas cactus on my deck. She layed 5 eggs, but in this first photo, it was hard to tell how many babies hatched - it just looked like a jumble of body parts.

I took the next photo two days later. Here I could clearly see 3 babies, but suspected that there may be more underneath.

I waited another 2 days and took this photo - all 5 babies, eyes open, mouths open, ready to eat!
