SPOTTED THICK-KNEES HATCHING

Posted on the 14th December 2018

BirdLife Overberg member Ingrid Grundlingh witnessed this wonderful sequal of events in her garden and was fortunate enough to get these marvelous images of the chicks hatching. Enjoy!

And here I come into this brave new world
Nearly clear of the egg
I have to get rid of this shell
The adult removes the evidence from the scene
Wecome to the second chick
The chick on the left now two days old, with the other one just hatched
