And then.... one day a tiny head peeks out of the nest. The baby bird has grown enough that his parents sometimes leave him all alone for a few minutes.

From his lookout post, the baby observes the woods where he'll soon fly freely. Constantly curious, not a sound escapes his attention and the slightest movement catches his eye. From time to time, he disappears to rest deep in the nest. Then he reappears to scrutinize the mysterious universe that surrounds him. Once in a while he emits little cries from the edge of the nest out into the world as if he expects an answer, but gets none. Is he afraid because his parents have been gone too long? Or is he simply calling to them because he's hungry?

At last his father is there and all you can see of the baby is his wide open beak, anxious to gobble his meal.
