And then there were two...

Looks like the babies have their eyes open.  Also they can lift their heads up and open their mouths.  Still very weak.  Sad to report that there are only two babies now!  We just noticed this evening. Not sure what happened to the third.  Maybe it was stillborn?  In any case the mother probably carried it off.  She's been very careful that way; she didn't even leave the egg shells beneath the nest because they'd give away the nest location.  At least the two babies left look healthy.
