Finch chicks

This was the finch nest yesterday morning when I watered.

This afternoon I watered and took pictures, and this first picture didn't get the whole nest, and the flash didn't go off.   My camera is contrary.

So I took another one---it was fuzzy, but something was happening in the nest.

So I took another one, and as they say, third time's a charm.  Keep in mind these finches are small birds.  The nest is about 3-inches across.  I can't quite make heads nor tails of the chicks right now, but I'm sure that will change.  There is a small fern leaf in the nest, maybe that will help put it to scale.
