There are a few more breeding sites in northern Kyushu and when the chicks leave the nest, we get a chance to watch them during the day. The little ones sit patiently, watching the world with great curiosity on their first day out. Every now and then they stretch their wings, eager to practise and explore. At night they will fly and catch their first cicadas. And after a few days they'll be gone. But for now here they are, all so very cute and adorable.
See you next year.
