The babies are swimming around and chirping all over the place.

And there are definitely seven!

Two of them seem more adventurous and hang out with Dad swimming around the canal.

Whereas the other five hang around the nest more.

I tried to close-up of one of the babies, but my photo-taking abilities aren’t the best. I suppose if I get on the ground and carefully focus, I might get a better shot, but that’s for later.

But you can see the red head and weird yellow feathers. So hideous, but so adorable at the same time.
