I couldn't stand the smell anymore so I cleaned the nest today. All five babies hopped around in the bathtub while I worked. A couple of them can fly a little. I was afraid they might escape but they couldn't stay airborne long enough.
In the third picture, you can see the smallest baby that still has fuzz on his head. The bottom picture shows some of the dried poop I dumped out of the nest.
Mom and dad didn't freak out as much as I thought they might. The babies are back in the nest now and everyone's settled down for the night.
