Birds are everywhere but there are even more baby birds over at Birding is Fun which is where I am posting today!


  1. It is a great time with the fledglings busy feeding. We have blue tits and great tits scruffy but gorgeous on the feeder adjacent to the window,I love to watch them.

  2. A lovely post Kathie I really like the shot of the Flickers with the Quail it looks like a bird paradise there.


  3. This is a great time to see all the cute baby birds. Loved your photos, Kathie! Have a great weekend and happy birding!

  4. You have such a great skill. I appreciate the way you capture these marvelous creatures. They are so young, so beautiful, so present. Wow.

  5. Wonderful captures of all these youngsters! It really is a fun time of year to view birds. Our property right now is teeming with young Black-capped Chickadees, Rose-breasted Grosbeaks, Eastern Bluebirds and House Finches. Lots of hungry, vocal, begging babies! I loved your other post at The Birding is Fun! Blog, too!

  6. Great shots! I love that baby gambrel quail! And they are all wonderful! Just enjoyed seeing all these babies very much!


Welcome to my nest! I hope you will enjoy spending time here with me and the birds. Thank you for your comments. I will try to get back to you as soon as I get back from counting more birds.
