i happened to be at central yesterday, since i was not in a rush, i routed charter garden to pay a visit to the trees and greenery there.
suddenly i sensed a sparrow moving unusually slow in front of me. taking a closer look, no wonder, it is a sparrow chick. it is yet to respond as fast as adult bird.
look. there is still a trace of yellow at the corner of its beak and the beak itself is pinkish showing that it is not very hard. lovely.
this prompts me to share another group of minors. it is a nest full of barn swallow chicks. summer has arrived long, i didn’t expect many swallows around. but this photo was taken just last week. these fellows were nesting inside a corner of a walk up building in my neighbourhood.
