Beautiful rain - and growing chicks

A lovely rainy day today - almost half an inch which has really revitalised everything. Could do with a lot more but we're grateful for small showers!

Lots of furious feeding going on now at the Double-eyed Fig Parrot's nest so the chick(s?) must be growing fast - the tiny nesting-hole is so high up that we have no way of knowing if there are one or two in there. We've been watching proceedings since early September since we first heard them.

It's very hard to get good photos because of the position and also the angles of light but here's Dad, bum-up at feeding time and then giving me the beady eye!
