Number 1 venturing out into the sunlight. Numbers 2 and 3 followed shortly thereafter. But number 4 waited for two days, enjoying all the attention and food, before following. So we had four out of five (one egg didn't hatch)... not bad, eh?

Thanks, Morris.
As the box is under the eve of my shop, it doesn't get much light, so a had four white Styrofoam boards lying in the sun to reflect some light. Wasn't much, 1/80 at f8, 400 ISO, but it is nice and soft. Still had to spend a little time in Lightroom to make it work.You can see the boards reflected in the eye on the bigger version. I had to tone them down a bit, otherwise it looked quite unnatural.

The last shot, taken just after the last one fledged. Job well done, Mama!

And here a 400% crop to see how I lit the subject. ;-)

Our house, a tipped up white garden table, and four white Styrofoam boards... without them I wouldn't have had a chance against the morning light.

Terrific shot of the fledgling Dan... cool nesting box, and I love seeing the wing following the circular bark, great head angle too. Very well done.

Thanks, Kirk.
Fact is he (#1) had just climbed rather clumsily out onto the perch and his wingtips were still inside. #2 was even more clumsy!
