Re: Common Starling nest

The adult starling was quite busy feeding the chick. Every two minutes it came back with some food. And this gave me the chance to detect the nest in the first place. Their second mistake was the noise of the chick whenever the adult starling was near.

Good capture of cute chicks

When you look at that nest, specifically the location and small door/opening, those chicks are pretty safe there.  They don't need to stay quiet or hide the nest, because no predator can get there anyways. But evolution couldn't prepare them against a Sony shooter with a 400mm, after all,  LOL.
