Out and about




One of the babies was sitting on our patio chair around suppertime yesterday. He looks so completely helpless, but he did have the sense to fly off when I got a little too close with the camera!

We have two nests of starlings in our yard as well, and they fledged yesterday too! So the garden is full of hungry screaming baby birds. :)))

  1. Oh my, he does look alone and unprotected, doesn't he? Is anyone else hearing strains of "where are you going, my little one, little one...?"

  2. Well, if it makes you feel any better, Daddy was nearby and when he finally noticed me, he started dive-bombing me again! :)

  5. What I love is when the fledges are almost as big as their parents, and follow their parents around, screaming to be fed. That won't be too long for these little fellas. ;)
