Heidar, I'm glad you enjoyed this series. More to come (since I did get more images of other bird young!) Stay tuned...

Barbara, I'm glad you enjoyed the series. Isn't it fun watching the young ones?
Ellen, thanks!


Great photos and wonderful descriptions. Just caught up on everything back to the loss of a brood. Sad but nature has a unbelievable way of making up for loses like that. Thanks for sharing your terrific photos!


What an adorable little chickadee!


Lovely series Nancy - have enjoyed the youngsters in my backyard as well, particularly a pair of mourning doves who love to cuddle together under the sunflower feeder - look so comfortable nestled in the clover. One silly grackle still begs its mom for seeds though it left the nest ages ago, still follows around bleating occasionally with open beak...so funny, Mom is getting impatient with this one though and largely ignores it... yes let's enjoy these babes while we can.

  • Our eyes and ears should be open and alert to the natural wonders that surround us every day. Take time to look out our windows to see the birds that visit us and open our windows to hear them. Walk around whatever space we have to enjoy the birds in nature. Every day, work on improving our powers of observation.


  • Nature happens. We cannot MAKE natural things happen (or NOT happen). We can create habitats to encourage natural things to happen around us, but there are no guarantees.


  • Birdfeeding comes with responsibilities to the birds and the environment we share with them. If you are unwilling to accept these responsibilities, you shouldn’t feed the birds. We also have a responsibility to share these natural wonders with the next generation.
