First day out of the nest

I observed this young sparrow along with two other siblings on my nest. I believe it was their first time out of the nest based on the short flights and constant encouragement from mother sparrow.

munching bugs

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

Feeding time

This female Song Sparrow is perching with food for a couple of seconds before she is going down to feed her babies in the nest. The Song Sparrow population on Mandarte Island is studied since 1975 and we observe all the stages of their life to document and collect life history and genetic data.
