Mockingbird Babies

There's been a whole lot of shrill cheeping outside throughout the day. After a couple of scouting expeditions I finally tracked down the source.
It's another Mockingbird nest. There are 3 babies in here (one of them got spooked when I peaked in and hopped out of sight). They have feathers on their wings and are pretty active but not going far from the edge of the nest right now. I especially like the fuzzy little feathers on their heads. This photo was taken almost a week ago. A couple of days later, the fuzzy head feathers were already gone. They grow up so fast!

There are two adult Mockingbirds tending to their every demand. I read that the male Mockingbird helps with the nesting and child rearing process. So sweet and helpful!
