PAPA FINCH & HIS FLEDGLINGS

Image

June 1, 2014 

Spring is a great time to keep your eyes open for the new generation of our fine feathered friends.  This feeder sits  outside my kitchen  window so by offering  food and water for the birds, I’m blessed  with a lots of feathered activity.   I think this Papa Bird,  in the middle,  is a House  Finch (although the Purple Finch looks similar so I’m frequently confused) and he is  helping/teaching the  fledglings  to find food.  

Image

Oh dear, I think they spotted me in the window! 

Image

Not sure if this is the same family or maybe a cousin?

Image

This baby has found  a feast and made itself comfortable.

Image

Is this is a fledgling starling maybe?   It has been hanging around my feeders for days and one afternoon I caught it having an   identity crisis and trying  to eat from the finch sock.

Lastly, there are two joyfully singing wrens residing in my wren house.  So maybe there are some baby wrens in the future????

Thanks for reading!

    Seeing these birds just made me feel happy—thank you, Jeannie! Wondering if the mystery bird might just be a mockingbird.
