My bride and I were quite concerned with our discovery-we're both bio majors and teachers. We knew that the likelihood of survival would be remote unless momma bird returned. My daughter made a few calls to pet stores, animal rescue centers, and my sister who happens to be a vet but their news was less than promising. These birds seemed to be to young to survive without momma's care.
We kept the nest inside for the night because it was going to drop into the 30s(just above 0 C for my aussie friends) and then we placed the nest on a ladder near the lamp in hopes that momma would return.
Well, the day went by and despite the newness spring provides, these baby birds were not meant to be. It was a sad time for my family. :(

That's my girl!
Today I really let myself down. I went 101 days without missing a photo op of sorts but for some reason day 102 slipped right past me. I never thought it would bother me as much as it is but if anything comes out of this project, it is a promise to myself that this will be the 1 and only photo I will forget this year.

As for the quality of the photo, I was stunned that the resolution was quite good using a BB at 5x from this distance.
