I walked outside to fill my feeders this morning and was bombarded with baby birds. They were everywhere! What choice did I have but to set aside whatever task was next on my to-do list (which clearly was not all that important since I have no recollection of what it was) and quickly grab my camera?
The baby bluebirds that showed up yesterday returned for breakfast, and were probably the noisiest of the bunch. These youngsters run their poor parents ragged!
And to the victor goes the spoils!
A couple of young Downy Woodpeckers also joined in the morning’s festivities. The male perched on another limb coated with the much coveted suet-type spread…
And lest you fear that the young mocking bird who lost the battle went hungry, he merely flew to a less busy branch and helped himself to a hearty meal.
