As predicted, mom freaked out the moment the Gecko came into mind.. Just in case some of you are not aware, mom has lizard/ gecko phobia..
And as usual, dad has to come to the rescue whenever he hears mom screaming like mad woman.. So daddy, went on an investigation spree..
It turned out it we have some new hot chickadees moved into the block ....
They are the Zebra Doves @ Barred Ground Doves.. Funny to watched dad climbed like a monkey just to have pics of them..
As dad moved around to take more pics of these chics at different angle, it turned out that there were more than 2 of them.. There's this another little fella hiding behind the other chick.
Look how proud the mom is.. It's amazing to see how comfortable she is with the camera snapping away at them..
We can't quite figure out the age of the fledgling, but just judging from the size, they should be taking their first flight very soon.. Safe flight my little ones ..
