Always appreciate your nice compliments, Richard!
I confirm that my back and neck did hurt! But I now have a cushy yoga mat for tomorrow.
Thank you very much, Mike! Apparently that is the standard way of mom grebe offloading the chicks to take a break. There were actually 3 babies on her back, although only 1 can be seen in this picture. Here are all three after the stand-and-shake action:
My take is that you liked my photo so much that you can't help making a second comment, thank you again!
