Adult Wrens Sharing A Meal

Here, one adult Wren is feeding its mate a tasty meal of fresh spider while the mate tends to their brood of hatchlings…

“Feeding Time”

Adult Wren brings supper back to her peeps, with their wide-open little maws, who are pleading at the nest box opening…

Last To Fly…

This Chickadee peep was the last member of its brood to leave the nest…it seems to have a somewhat forlorn look on its face, as if it might miss all the warm snuggle factor, and company, of its siblings…

Ma and Pa did just fine keeping the last of the brood well-fed until it decided to make its leap of faith…

I’m adorable and I know it

Every year the Piping Plovers return to the shore of Georgian Bay. This past spring/summer 5 pair nested. Here’s hoping all of the chicks survive and their numbers continue to increase.

Baby Eastern Bluebird that is the lucky recipient of the bugs Dad hunted.

Hungry here!

I came upon three baby Eastern Bluebirds all vying for the food Dad was out hunting for. This was one of the lucky ones that Dad fed (see next picture). Even though they were able to fly, they like to milk the baby thing.
