Song Sparrows

First time that I had a song sparrow nest in my yard.

Photo taken through window plus screen. Sadly, two crows ravished the nest the day after this was taken. The pair is now nesting again nearby with for more eggs beginning to hatch. Two cow bird eggs are in the old nest (photograph) but not being incubated.

Sweet Baby Song Sparrow

I was photographed this fledgling Song Sparrow & siblings one summer afternoon. They were trying to stay hidden in a large evergreen bush, but their (very loud!) chirps didn’t help that. After a few pics, I left them to carry on with exploring & begging their momma for food.
