Young Birds in our Back Yard

Young Birds in our Back Yard
12 June 2013

    Every year we seem to be blessed with a variety of young birds of different species in our back yard. Today we had young Common Grackles Quicalus quiscala and House Sparrows Passer domesticus. We always find it really amusing to watch the antics of the youngsters and to marvel at the sheer dedication of the parents. We are now awaiting the hatch day of a pair of Black-capped Chickadees Poecile atricapillus that are sitting on eggs in a nest box at the moment.
