|Mother, Father and Chicks|
Yesterday, from inside the house, I noticed a mother, father and dozen or so chicks in the backyard.

They really blended in with the ground as they scratched around for food.
How many chicks below? The 4th one at the lower right looks nearly invisible.
I didn't know if they had hatched in the backyard or what. After snapping a few pictures through the glass window, the neighbors' cat came into the yard. Could the chicks fly? Yes, well enough!
