Sunbirds Have Flown Away

This morning, after many, many attempts to leave the nest, the baby sunbirds have finally flown away. It was rather amusing seeing them perch at the edge of the nest opening, flap their wings, then chicken out and hop back in...despite both the daddy bird and mommy bird trying their best to coax them out.

The first to leave the nest...

The one that was left behind...tried many times to fly.

But sadly, I ran out of tape and didn't record the second bird flying away. Now the nest is quiet and empty :(

But after lunch, a new female bird came to inspect the empty nest... so it looks like there will be more bird-watching in the coming weeks :)
