A better picture of the Cowbird. What a sweet little cowbird. It’s taking good care of its not yet hatched Cardinal siblings.

The First Carolina Chickadee Nestling

When I visited the nest box to check on the Carolina Chickadee nest, I was surprised at what I saw. The first Carolina Chickadee nestling hatched! I was so filled with joy that the first little Chickadee nestling finally made it’s way out the shell. Welcome to the world little Chickadee! Now to wait for it’s siblings to hatch too.

Change of Shift

Amazingly, these Killdeer nested on a derelict foundation in the middle of a construction site. In spite of the noise and busyness, they courageously stayed on the nest until all four eggs had hatched. Not long after, the foundation, too, was destroyed as the planned ‘development’ progressed.

Some photos I forgot to submit of the last fledgling being taken care of before fledging. He sure has nice parents! The cowbird nestling already fledged the day before.
