Just one of the tired, hungry babies of three. Mamma had just left the box and this one was still wanting more.

This was the first nest box that had babies the year we moved into our house. There were 3 loud babies and all wanted that morsel mamma Sparrow had.

munching bugs

these young fledglings were out with their parents, creating alot of noise enjoying bugs for lunch.
