Back to the Littles

Right downstairs, very well built nest. Protection from below and above. Three babies. Eyes closed, some head fuzz, no feathers yet.

Robins are wonderful housekeepers. Feed baby. Wait for fecal sac. If not delivered, peck baby on rump and remind baby what to deliver.

Off to Central Park. Starling nest hole near Bow Bridge. Parent removing fecal matter from nest.

Blackberries! I've eaten some. Good!

Guess who else likes the berries.

I wore a green shirt and I think I must have been perceived as a tree, because twice birds sat right next to me.

Back to the delightful home front.

It's mostly park regulars in Central Park. The one surprise was the tufted titmouse family high in the trees near Bow Bridge, obvious youngsters calling for food. Couldn't get any clear shots.
