Springtime: chicks, parents, feeding and protection. Those are more or less the key words. This week I followed two families: one of Tawny Owls and one of Egyptian Geese. The first have 4 chicks, the latter 8 ! Funny how you can see them grow day by day. Also interesting to see how alert and protective the parents are. And so proud ! Hope all of the chicks will make it !
