Hungry Hatchlings by JoycelynSiew Hungry Hatchlings by JoycelynSiew
A pair of Brown Honeyeater hatchlings take refuge in one of my mum's pot plants.

Fun fact: The small neat cup-nest is made from fine bark, grasses and plant down, bound with spiders web, and is slung by the rim in a shrub, fern or tree at up to 5 m from the ground and is usually very well-hidden by thick foliage.

This particular nest is only about 1.5m up, and is covered on three sides by foliage. The only decent gap opens up on the side that faces my door :3
