Blackbird Babies

There are definitely three hatchlings, although I haven't been able to get all of them in one photo yet.
It will be interesting to see how they grow. Their mother has no tail, and therefore cannot fly. She has been hopping around the backyard for about a year, and obviously found a male blackbird who was happy to mate with her. But there are probably not a lot of backyards where a hopping bird can live safely, so if the babies don't grow tails I don't expect them to live very long.
