First breeding season in our new home

A selection of images of some of our backyard parents and their kids. The bluebirds had three clutches in a new house I built just for them after I noticed them interested in (but not buying) an older house I’d put up. The Tanagers were summer-long visitors to our feeders, which was a real treat, and the Broad-winged Hawk was one of three fledglings who seemed unafraid to use our birdbath during the summer heat.

ID Please for hawk!!/Chickadee & Titmouse.


Broad Winged Hawk Babies

I have been following this nest for 2 months now. It is far enough away through the trees that I need to get to just the right place with my spotting scope to see the babies.
