My back yard and fruit trees have turned into a nursery for baby birds. In the last chapter I spoke about being attacked by the Robins.
This time it is the Cardinals. Their little one flew the coop yesterday and I got a few snaps on the camera. I wasn’t attacked this time because this wasn’t my fault. A squirrel was the culprit! Again, the parents were just busy feeding and guarding the little one. My oh my, I have certainly learned something about birds this spring! Things I never knew.
The parents are just so wonderful at protecting their young. These two kept an ever watchful eye and kept the squirrels and Blue-jays away. While making sure their little Tyke didn’t go hungry.
I have put some arrows pointing to the birds because I had to keep my distance. I didn’t want to scare anyone.

Your yard is a real “birdland”. Yesterday morning we had little baby hummingbirds – smaller than my little finger come to our feeder for breakfast! They would eat and then rest on an old wicker chair back just off our deck. Still can’t figure out where their “home” is located. Wonder if they nest in trees or if they are just nomads?
Hummingbirds! That is so neat and babies to boot!!! I love them but cannot seem to get them to come around here. I saw a documentary once about hummingbirds and I seem to remember, vaguely mind you, that they nest in some kind of thorny or briar bush. Probably some sort of protection for them. 🙂 Check this site out. http://community-2.webtv.net/hotmail.com/verle33/HummingBirdNest/
Tiki…Most of them…… But we still have some slow starters. The second Family of Robins in the peach tree. I’m still waiting to prune the new growth back. I’m not getting near the tree because I don’t want to get attacked again, lol
This beach town celebrity mansion, marked the first official video project we used our fancy new DJI Phantom 3 Professional drone on. I thought the design of the house itself was fascinating…the exterior architecture looked ...
