More Backyard Birds

Today's Greeting

Baby Album

Quiet moment

I got lucky this morning - I heard some very loud cheeping, and three carolina wren babies flew in, right in front of me...I think they had just fledged - they stayed on the ground a lot.


This one decided I needed a nice pose.

This was funny - it looks as though he's seeing if anyone is home - he was actually drinking the water droplets.

The End

Not quite - I need to make a correction..the warbler from yesterday is a blackpoll, not a black and white, warbler. The top of his head is solid black, not striped, as a b&w would be.

Up early this morning aren't you?! The feeding shots are wonderful - do you put mealworms out for your birds?

Just beautiful! It's always a pleasure to see the babies being fed. Your 'blues' are to die for!!

Great photos as usual, I really like the last one.

Wonderful pictures! I always love coming here to see your birds. The babies are adorable! Your caterpillar is exquisite! I wish I hadn't deleted the one picture I took of a black and white warbler yesterday because now you have me wondering if what I saw was really what I thought it was. :)

Mary said...

Love the card today! And all the baby pics are precious. That little wren would have been very surprised if a toad had popped its head out :-)

It's such a treat to see all your baby birds. Looking forward to it every morning! And they grow so fast... ;)
Cheers, Klaus

I am so loving your bluebirds! And I am so jealous! Wish they'd come live by me.

Wonderful photos as always - your bird shot are just amazing, and I'm so glad you share them!

And that caterpillar card is wonderful - love the focus perspective.

Your Bluebird baby album is still tops on my list, but all the images are great.

Aren't fledglings wonderful? I love seeing them making so many goofy mistakes.
