July 28, 2010 Chimney Swifts eggs hatch!

Our nesting Chimney Swifts in our chimney in Carp finally hatched, at least 2 of the 3 eggs. Their little naked pink bodies were visible from the top of the chimney. Hopefully they will survive the next few weeks before they're fledged.

Fantastic photos Bruce! Paul Pratt directed me to these photos. So difficult to locate good Chimney Swift nesting photos.
