Two hatchlings less than a week old found resting in their nest. Skin is translucent, showing their boney body. Feathers are seen growing out of their wings. Whenever their mother bird visits the nest with food, the hatchlings will stretch out their necks with beaks wide open, waiting to be fed.

Location: Johor Bahru, Johor, Malaysia
