I am Fledgling…see me fly!

This was the last of our tree swallow babies and I caught this little guy by chance fledging! It was one of the best moments of my life and of his!

Cute little tough guy

After I realized what I was seeing wasn’t a coconut shell in the walkway, I stopped to get a closer look. I was able to take a couple of photos while being “dive-bombed,” “flapped” and “squawked at” by Dad grackle.

I was talking to my neighbour when this little one flew into the bush beside me and I happened to have my camera handy. I left quickly as mama oriole was wanting to feed the baby.

Getting too big for the nest.
