The mother of these squabs got an opportunity to do a close shoot. My home was undergoing painting and yesterday was the last day, on which the workers painted the window grill where these squabs are growing. The contractor asked me to engage a person to paint all the grills from the beginning, but since these squabs were new borne, I told him to delay the work as long as he could.
The kids even did not want to disturb them and I asked the contractor if he can send someone later to just paint that window later, he denied. So yesterday, the work was done and the mother of these squabs left them alone for some time. Not sure, if she got disturbed or she felt secure to leave them because a person was nearby.
He wanted to open that sliding door for few minutes to paint and told me that the mother has left them. So I took the opportunity to shoot a close video and some close photographs. As soon as he finished, we told him to close it and the mother was back quickly. May be she was watching it somewhere nearby.
It has been an amazing experience for all of us to see the love between the mother and the squabs. We have now seen few times the mother feeding them by her peak and playing with them - dragging them by holding the peak of the kids. May be that is how they love and play. By the time we go, they just keep quiet. I told the person to clean the other side of the window so that we can take some images without disturbing them, but since the mother came very soon, we did not want to disturb them again. And she is very protective about her kids like every other mother on this universe - the kids are having a nice time watching this process so close.
