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:

      I was thinking this after the latest post. I wonder how many of their "patients" are still alive one year after their "treatment." I'd also like to know how many people begin actual medical treatment after leaving there. Eta my guess is not many. If they're deep enough into the woo to go there in the first place* they may dig their heals in further upon leaving. 
       

      *and wealthy enough. Even if they fundraise and sell everything they can to go down there there's still some degree of financial ability to do it. (On that note I wonder how many "patients" or their families come back to the states destitute. 

      Someone posted a link about this way upthread somewhere - a youtube guy who went searching to see how many patients who had started GoFundMes had evidence of being alive or deceased a couple of years post treatment. The stats were pretty much what you'd expect

      I find it strange having a name theme. I'm used to John and Jane happen to start with the same letter and since they stopped at two they technically had a "theme" but only because those were the names they liked. It wasn't some "we have to come up with a name we like that fits the theme." Maybe it's just me but I find it weird that so many second gen Kellers have an intentional theme. (Outside of bible names or something. Eta so I guess I'm used to "bible names" being a theme.  But starting with the same letter is weird to me)

      I think the whole idea of a “name theme” is kind of foreign to me. The biggest family I know personally have 3 kids. More than 3 is really uncommon here. Parents will usually gravitate towards somewhat similar types of names (in terms of social background connotations, modern vs. traditional, similar “vibe”), but I’ve never heard of anyone with a naming theme outside of FJ.

      Honestly, they could actually be working and still grifting for extra cash. We obviously can’t expect honesty or true transparency from them!

      I would almost be proud of them if they were pulling this off.

      We have such an obscure naming theme that I’m not sure if my partner even noticed I did it! The obvious one is that all of us have names that are technically biblical, but so common that people don’t automatically associate it. The other 2 things with my kids nobody has ever picked up on.
