Baby Blackbirds

I love all new life, whether it be native or not, so was delighted to see the blackbirds building a nest in the carport.

Take 1, really didn't work very well for them, so they rebuilt in the other corner.

It isn't a very good photo as I didn't want to get too close to Mum/Dad and scare them off as there are little baby birds in the nest now. You can't see them in this photo, but I have seen their hungry mouths popping up out of the nest. Also that is probably why Mum/Dad are sitting in this weird spot as there is no room in the nest and it is a stinking hot day here, so wouldn't want to sit on the babies - 36 degrees Celsius.

Not sure what will happen now, will they fall out of the nest when they get bigger? I will need to keep an eye on them, so I don't run over them and the chooks, roosters and ducks don't attack them.
