    Yeah, if something is going on then the safest place is to hide behind your mother. Human children do it too!

    Jaak, you're definitely THE master of wonderful, intimate, mother+chick pictures. You should be very happy about this! They look so tiny!

    Thanks Bruno :-).

    Actually the chick is not going to hiding but to warmth (or maybe he/she was just shy :-). This was already out-of-the-nest period where the small ones' defence mechanism in case of danger was to run away from mother and once the threat was gone mother called them together again.
