Two beautiful chicks. Interesting the colour variation in their cheeks, one has grey cheeks and one has red cheeks.

By the way, Roy, I shared this sighting on Twitter through the official NatureMapr account and it has had 35,000 views, far and away the most successful sighting ever shared through that social media platform.
