Six days later-  Skylark Chicks have hatched
The Skylark (Alauda arvensis; Polish-Skowronek) is one of the first migratory birds to arrive in Poland after winter. It nests on the ground and its nests are hidden among tall grass and are very difficult to find. The female lays from 3 to 5 eggs and sits on them for 12-14 days. Young leave nest just 9 days after hatching. Alauda arvensis is a small bird of open pastures and meadows.

problems with birds, but this reminds me of
the poem "Skylark Ascending."

In them, that song aloft maintains,
To fill the sky and thrill the plains!
With showerings drawn from human stores,
As he (to silence) nearly soars.
