Young Friends in our Back Yard

Young Friends in our Back Yard
22 June 2013

    As mentioned in an earlier post we are blessed with a variety of young birds in our back yard and you can see a few of them below. It is particularly interesting that the Brown-headed Cowbird is no longer being fed by its surrogate Chipping Sparrow parents, and seems to have "adopted" us in some strange way. It rarely seems to feed far from us and when it is sated for a while settles down about a metre or so from our chairs and sleeps. We are happy to have it hang out with us!
