Five little birds in a vineyard nest

Look who is hiding in the vineyard: 

Five little baby birds.  Mummy has found a pretty shady spot but with temps in the 80's they were getting a little toasty.

I don't know what type of birds they are as I haven't seen a parent go in. John just saw the nest as he was wandering the vineyard.

Can you see how they carefully poop over the edge of the nest so as not to make a mess where they are sitting.  A "lovely" edging of poop all around the nest! Mummy is training them well.

Aren't they just the sweetest!  Makes me want to be a birdy mum!

Ooh!... They already have very impressive beaks, don't they? Do keep us posted, do!
