Birthday kids two weeks old

The whole family together on Sunday morning. A joy to watch the nicely growing and well-fed stork children
They are called Liina and Miiko by the forum  It has been asked earlier that sex is not known, so from where do these names come? Constant nest life watchers distinguish the youngsters quite well from each other, and so it is easier to characterize their behaviour and doings. When the storklets are ringed they will be measured and weighed, and from feathers a gene analysis will be made later: then the sex will be clear, and if we meet the young storks later and these facts are different from the names, Liina can for instance become Lennart or the other way around (the name change is an arbitrary example).
