Doing for himself

Right in front of the door, very young robin. No idea which nest was home.
Mouth open to keep cool.
Runt/Sky/Scooter knows how to pick on his own.
A well developed fledgling
Somebody delivered bread and Runt grabbed it.
Salad time
The feathers are looking a bit better, cleaner. Maybe eventually this kid will learn proper flight.

A bit of preening, from the 14th

So glad to see that Runt/Sky/Scooter knows how to preen. The kid is a mess.
Oh, no!  Styrofoam is not for eating, but tell that to a sparrow.

Totally surprised

I was following berry trees knowing that if I would see anything it would be at a food source. Never expected this, juvenile red-eye vireo, eating, calling, doing the feed-me-flap. Totally delightful.
Feed me. Feed me!
The biggest surprise, however, a Wilson's warbler. It flew north west. I waited in this area, but it didn't come back.  I've never before seen a warbler in the park in July.

Feed me, Ma!

The easy route is food from Mom.
But the truth is he can feed himself.

Crunch

This is the closest I've been able to capture of Runt flight.
Oh, a cruncher. Kid got a bug and knows exactly what to do with it. Crunch it to death, then eat it up.
Still waiting for proper flight.
