Hungry mouths

A pair of Lewin Honeyeaters found a suitable branch for a nest on a shrub that is growing under our verandah and as it is out of the sun and rain(if we had any) so seems ideal. I notice a couple of days ago that there were young chicks in the nest and today I manage to get photos (most have too much movement and are blurred or branches in the way) at feeding time. 

 This photo was taken just as the adult arrived at the nest and the three chicks were very  vocal demanding to be fed.
I will keep an eye on their progress and hopefully they will make it to being able to take flight rather than dinner for a Lace Monitor or a Diamond Python (they are welcome to feed on the rats that are around the chook yard).
