  •  Yep, they are little cuties (6+ / 0-)

    We had cuteness overload around here when the chicks were in the nest and then began to peek out. As they got close to fledging, they'd stand gripping an alfalfa mat on a platform that I had positioned next to their nest, and flap their wings like mad. They reminded me of bumblebees. Tiny, stationary bumblebees.

    And then there was the day I walked by the cage and noticed one of them was on a perch on the far side of the cage. Flight! I got so excited I ran to get the camera and stubbed my toe on the corner of the coffee table. Ouch! And all for what? A picture of a linnie on a perch?!
