Description

May 19, 2014 Mid-morning I discovered 2 fledgling Eastern Bluebirds on the ground learning to fly.The parents were in the trees or flying above the youngsters keeping watch. I would check on them over a period of several hours during the day. There is a path through wild violets that leads to larger walking path with high grass on each side that goes to our daughter’s home. This is where the fledglings would be. When they would get “spooked” they would fly into the high grass. When I snapped the submission thumbnail I could see the little fellow breathing hard. What a joy to watch.

Learning To Fly

I am so tired. Learning to fly is hard work.
