One Week Old

The oldest chicks are one week old today!  It never ceases to amaze me how fast they grow!  Even the youngest chick has some mobility.  Above is the adult feeding the nestlings this morning.  
Below is the male attempting to brood the chicks.  Between his smaller size and the chicks growing, he barely has them covered!
All are looking good and the adults are bringing in plenty of food.  Here is a link to a video of a feeding.   Notice too, how littered the nest is starting to get with feathers and other prey remains!
