The Crucible of LifeNew Life beginning
Today, I have first witnessed the new new life from this pair of Ibis. Have seen two of the three eggs hatched this morning. All on time 21-23 days from laying of the eggs. Not strong enough to stand yet, but will see that in the next couple of days I expect. Each chick is born naked and a short stubby pink beak.
Over the next 48 days I will witness the growth of these chicks, as they become fully fledged at that time.
