There were just so many images I couldn't stand to omit posting that I made gifs out of them so you can see how fast they're growing. At the last gif, the chicks are already venturing out from their parents and a sort of loose creche has formed. A creche is like a nursery for chicks that is supervised by a few adults. This allows the rest of the rookery inhabitants to freely fish for food.
This one is just super adorable!
And on the other side of the rookery... look at the size of those chicks!
