Baby Birdies came out to play!

Yay, the baby birdies at my mum and dad's came out for the first time today. I missed the first 3 but managed to get there in time for the 4th to come out. First pic is mum calling baby out of the nest. Second pic is mum trying to coax baby out. Third pic is baby looking right at me. Fourth pic is baby in a bush after it was brave enough to fly for the first time. The pictures do not show just how teeny tiny the baby birds are, when I left my mum and dad's there were at least 2 or more babies still in the nest. We looked online and found that the babies will stay with their parents for 2 weeks after they first leave the nest then all the birds will leave and not come back :-( I hope to be able to see them a couple more times before then and try and get some more pictures.

Oh, how exciting!  What species are they?!  :tw_love:

The speed at which birds grow just absolutely astounds me.

They are Blue Tit's @SpoonfulOSugar, the parents started building the nest in the bird box in April so it is very fast growth!

Thanks @Tikobaby, I'm so pleased I was able to be there and get some pictures of them, I only go to my parent's twice a week so thought there would be no chance of seeing them. I sat in the garden for 2hrs just watching the bird box and taking as many pictures as possible, think I ended up with 15 or so pics and only 2 or 3 were dud's!

I do a lot of backyard bird photography and I know it can be tricky to get those good shots. Takes time and patience. Am so glad you got some!  Love seeing different birds and I've never seen your birds in real life.  Hope you're able to get a few more shots before they've grown up and left the nest.   :bird::bird::bird:

      Sorry for triple-posting. At the beginning of the trailer, what was Gwen testifying under oath about in 2019 (date at the bottom of the screen)? Something related to Joe Lara’s child custody antics? And if so, how did the person questioning her get away with his seemingly-aggressive line of questioning asking if people from Remnant consider Gwen to be a prophet? Because the question relates to Gwen’s character as a witness or something, I suppose? Or maybe in whatever settings the questions were being asked, there’s not a judge present to sustain objections or whatever? Because to me, Gwen looked like she wished someone would step in and object to that question. Clearly I am not a lawyer and I have no idea what Im talking about lol. But if anyone thinks they know the answer, please teach me!

      USMCDAD and I were fully vaccinated when our grandson was born and we STILL wore masks when we held him the first day. When our son-in-law got the okay from the pediatrician, we took the masks off but the doctor said “no kissing baby’s head or face” until he had his two month vaccines. Also, our daughter asked us to get a TDAP booster, mainly for the pertussis coverage; so of course we did that. 
       

      Seeing Becky kissing that tiny baby really angers me. Once again, we see “pro life” idiots endangering the ones they claim to love. It really takes so little to do our part to protect these babies.  I just don’t understand these people.

      On a separate note: Wow. Hype trailer! Now I know for sure that I’ve been out of RF a long time, because aside from Gwen/Joe and all the women in that old photograph used during the “stepford wives” reference, I didnt recognize anyone else! Who is this dude in the cowboy hat slinging highly-quotable soundbites left and right? I applaud his apparent media savvy, but I hope that (for his own sake) in the full documentary he doesn’t go any further than evidence and personal anecdotes can reasonably take him.

      This is a really flattering image of Gwen. I saw her a few months before the plane crash and she did NOT look this good.

      You’re right, and I’d bet $1000 that if the overlying mosaic of photos was removed, what is underneath is actually a digital artist’s rendition of Gwen (or at the very worst a heavily photoshopped photo) rather than an actual photo. The eyes are larger and brighter than life, almost to the point of being anime-adjacent. The bone structure of her face is somewhat different than it was in real life, with larger cheekbones and an ultra-feminine jawline, and in general the bone structure looks like a hybrid between Gwen and a Barbie doll. The lips and perioral region are about as plump as a 20- or 30-year-old model’s, which is far from the thin and shrunken appearance that Gwen’s had for the last two decades. The roots of the hair are just a solid dark color, and the lighter overlying hairs are so uniform that they look like they were drawn with a brush tool. Plus, there is like a gothic-style church window behind her, which cannot be found at RF or WD as far as I know, and which I suspect is just an unrelated photo of a church window that the digital artist grabbed off of Google images or Shutterstock to use as a background. Just my guess, but look closely and see if you agree.

      I've heard of "oneness pentecostalism", but Gwen didn't teach that.  How do you define Gwen's "oneness" concept?

      Good question. I used the word incorrectly, thinking that it’s the same as “one god, not a triune god.”  Thank you!!!
