Growing Up

Sleepy mockingbird babies

3 baby mockingbirds

New baby mockingbirds

3 new baby mockingbirds at John Paul’s Landing Park. What’s weird is that there getting feathers but barely even have eyes!

Such Sweet Mockingbirds!

Still 4 cute baby mockers.

They all hatched!

All 4 eggs hatched! Even the one that I thought was infertile.

Happy Birthday Baby Mockingbirds!!

Two have the four eggs hatched!! Still waiting for the other two. The other nest’s eggs are due to hatch between July 4th and 5th.

Tree Swallow Young!

The other day, I saw both the male and female Tree Swallows going in and out of the box. Because the weather wasn’t really nice, I waited until today to check the box. All four eggs have hatched!

Baby House Sparrows

Mrs. Perry is doing a great job feeding her four babies!

4 baby finches!

Mr. and Mrs. Finch have four baby finches. Sadly, neither of them wants to care for them, the babies are so thin! Mrs. Finch seems to have abandoned them and Mr. Finch refuses to feed them. I hope they are ok!

Cutest Baby Deer

We saw 3 families of Killdeer. The first family had 2 chicks, the second (shown in photos) had 3 chicks, and the third had 1 chick. We watched the 2nd family as they were within feet of us. Two of the chicks behaved, staying together and listening to Mrs. Deer, the other was with Mr. Deer. This chick wouldn’t come over even when Mrs. Deer yelled at him. He came over after lots of yelling from Mrs. Deer but took a lot longer than he needed to. I wonder where these three nests were. We only found two.

The Killdeer eggs have hatched!

The Killdeer eggs have hatched! Before we only saw the mother but today we saw both the mother and father. All four eggs hatched. The photos aren’t that good because they were running around. There was a black snake in the water so I hope it doesn’t get the babies! They are still a bit wobbly.

Brown-headed Nuthatch Feeding Young

The Brown-headed Nuthatch pair (was a cooperative breeding situation with former juvenile from prior brood, but that one has moved on) has been tending to their hatched young. Managed to get great videos at multiple angles showcasing feeding, fecal sac removal, and young peeking out. Lots of vocalizations by parents and young. They’ve grown so big!

Eastern Bluebird babies

Eastern Bluebirds nested in my backyard for the third consecutive year, and blessed me this Spring with 5 babies. This is the first brood at 5 days old. Hatch date was April 6, 2021.

Carolina Wren Babies

Our “Workshop Nest” built by the Carolina Wren contained two beautiful little eggs, which we were pleased to observe as successfully hatched today (Easter Sunday)!

2 Mourning Dove babies

After only seeing one egg a month ago in the nest, Momma never seemed to leave again for me to check on it. I saw her up there a couple days ago sitting next to one baby. Then today I went out and there were 2 babies!!! So excited. She must have laid her other egg and then kept her young guarded toward the back of the nest where I could not see them. Congratulations Momma Mourning Dove on 2 beautiful babies.

Having a rest.

This mother duck makes a nest in my garden every year. I love watching out of the window when the babies hatch. They are so cute when they climb all over her.

5 – 8 day old eastern bluebirds

We have baby blues!

5 eastern bluebird babies. Both parents both very active and well, babies are growing fast and Nestbox looks great. We have worked very hard to create a habitat to give them their best shot at survival. Born on the morning of April 5, 2016.

Black-capped Chickadees

This was taken in 2012, the first year I had BC chickadees use one of my bluebird boxes. All five babies successfully fledged and I had the joy of watching their parents teach them the ins and outs of bird feeders, bugs and other treats in our yard.
