The Welcomed Guests 2 - Eggs Hatched!

I’m THRILLED! The eggs have hatched! Yay!

I took the two-featherless-baby-birds' photos while the mother was away. I wasn’t able to get the best shots since I was in a hurry to get ready to send Dear Hubby to KLIA this morning. I hope to get the best angle and post later - with their mouths open and necks extended.

See - the nestlings aren't that pretty lah, in fact they look rather ugly! But I’m sure when their feathers have grown, they’ll look like their handsome parents :)
The nestlings- eyes closed and naked.

I'll keep on updating their photos. And you know what ... I guess I'll never be able to eat Burung Puyuh Goreng after this!

***update: pics taken at 7pm on 5th May



Notice the insides of its mouth?


Aww... the hungry lil birdies...

Dear Mamasita,
I geram saja.. felt like touching them, tapi kesian la pulak tengok naked camtu...

Dear Syana,
Haifa tak tau lagi la. Kesian kat dia , tapi Kak Ja tak mau take the risk now since the nestlings still macam tu. Rasa guilty jugak tak bagi tau dia.

Petang tadi when I came home, she saw me taking the pictures... I told her that I was taking pictures of the Golden Chain flowers. Looked like she didn't believe me!

Kak Ja,

Those photos are brilliant! Lucky you for capturing such moment. They are co cute...

I think I rather choose not to shoot on such subject. I still nak makan burung puyuh goreng!

sYaNa said...

Good pics, Kak ja :o)

I am looking at the 2nd pic ... wow, a big mouth for such a lil one.

Don't feel guilty Kak Ja. Anak2 burung tu dah besar skit, boleh la bgtahu Haifa :o)

yay!!!! best nya ja....

Dear Ja,
I was lucky to be able to take their pix. The first pic yesterday morning- they were not active at all. Rasanya masa tu baru hatched kot. Balik office that evening, they were very active dah. Suara pun dah keluar.. vague chirping sound.

Hahaha.. rugi satu nikmat dunia - puyuh goreng, kan?

Dear Syana,
I think I'm gonna tell her dalam dua-tiga hari ni. I want herto share the excitement jugak. Cumanya my maids kena dok perhati lah.. just in case ;)

Dear D,
It's so exciting, especially when you can see their progress, from building the nest, laying the eggs, now the lil ones and the growth progress.

Mesti sedih giler bila depa dah fledged nanti...huhuhu...

Dalam Dakapan Ibu said...

Dear Min,
Memang best! I hope to capture their progress on camera :)

Abang Sejuk said...

Kak Ja,
Burung apa tu??

wanshana said...

Ja,

Congratulations on the new addition to the family :)

Nice pics, Ja.

Kena be extra careful - takut ada cats around which might attack the birdies.

yus said...

oh wow! you boleh kaya ni juai gambaq kat national geographic, takpun kat animal planet.careful che U pun could be attracted to their chirpings. Nice shots Ja.Very real, minus the sound je.

tireless mom said...

Animal planet made in Malaysia. Agaknya burung tengok manusia melahirkan baby camna pulak dia kata ye.

Ida Hariati Hashim said...

Alahai merahnya lagi ye..bising depa bunyi?

Selamat menjaga anak2 burung..

Uncle Lee said...

Hello Ibu, apa burung ni?
Yes, give or take a week or two and they'll be beautiful.
Now so halpless, like babies.
They will bring good fung shui to you and family. Lee.

Dear Abang Sejuk aka Ja,
Rasanya burung Merbah. Searched the internet and saw the similarities there.

Dalam Dakapan Ibu said...

Dear Shana,
TQ, excited I mcm I pulak yg dapat baby!

Memang ada cats yg dok mengurat. I think the cats heard the chirpings. We've moved the teakwood bench which was placed next to the tree further. Takut pulak jadi apa-apa kat babies tu.

Hi Yus,
Susah nak dapat shots tu, especially when the nest is hidden celah2 batang pokok & daun.

Mintak simpang la Cik U tu...eeeee...

Dear TM,
Hahhaha... I never thought of that! Agaknya depa geleng kepala kot!

Dalam Dakapan Ibu said...

Hi Ida,
Today nampak dah ada fine feathers. So fast they grow... Bunyi very faint chirpings saja, but enough to attract the cats!

Dear U.Lee,
I think they are Merbah. I don't know what they are called in English. Looking at their parents, I'm sure the babies will grow up as handsome as them :)

TQ U.Lee, you have a great weekend, ok?

Chahya said...

Cute! Great photos!
Keep udating about the birdies ya.

Dalam Dakapan Ibu said...

Dear Chahya,
TQ. I'll try to update their progress here. Now the fine feathers have grown especially at the head area. Eyes have opened. They don't look naked anymore :)
