My neighbours--A Pair of Nesting Red-Whiskered Bulbuls (2)

A few days later, the female bird started to spend more and more time in the nest (You can see the spider web used for attaching the nest to the tree branches) .  

When she was out, I noticed 3 eggs in the nest (The 3rd one can not be seen in this photo).

Three days later, one of the eggs had hatched. 


From that day, the parents started their hard work going back and forth to bring home all kinds of insects. 







The noisy little chicks were growing up very fast.





Stay tuned for the next unexpected event........
