Bath conversation

I heard the robin and whistled back. Robin watched me and sang again. I sang. She sang.  It didn't last long. but it was enchanting.

Berry time


 It's berry time. The finches arrive, male and female and eat tidily the way we eat an apple. Take a bite, chew,swallow.




The young robin stabs berries and tries to swallow them whole.


It's hard grabbing shots with all the leaves in the way.  Soon it will be mulberry season.

Food activity

One baby in the small dove nest.
 
Male and female finches stopping by for a nibble.




Food for nestlings. There are three tiny nestlings in this robin's nest, close to berry bushes.



Double mouthful means food for kids.

Robins in back yard


 There are babies out of various nests all being fed by Papas.




This is a new nest in same spot as last spring.
A three baby family. The kids have to learn that leaves are not food.
Two of the fledglings with papa. The third is up in a tree waiting for food.

Even the young starlings are screaming for food.  Mostly ignored by parent.

Lunch


 Young dove now has to find its own food.
Adult dove nearby.

Backyard dove nest surviving despite severe rain storms.
And then there are the robin fledglings. Papa has to supply the food. They don't know how to find their own food yet. The worms don't always go straight down.












Different baby perhaps from another nest.
