Warbler Chick Growing Fast
18 November 2009
Remember that squirmy, white-tufted little chick from a week or so ago? Well, look at him now! He still has big, white, fluffy eyebrows but he has grown “pins” - thin, grey tubes with feathers inside. At about ten days old, the feathers will begin to break through the end of each pin until, by 21 days old, he will look like a real warbler (instead of like an old professor napping in the library) – just a bit fatter and fluffier.
He’ll leave the nest but his parents will keep feeding him for a while, just like these fledglings I found on the track to Whalers Bay.
