The Garden on the 3rd

Both cardinal parents bring  food for their nestlings,  Fast delivery from male.

Dove babies growing, no longer green
Lunch has arrived, the father.

The mulberry tree is in fruit, ripe berries dropping. Birds up in tree, doves and pigeons on ground.
The juice and seeds are a vital part of the dove diet. Body will process and babes will be fed.

Charming fun

These are from the 2nd. Judging from body behavior I suspect there are babies in the cardinal nest.

Robin youngsters really maturing.
Mulberries are falling, necessary seeds for dove diet. Easy pickings.

Meanwhile up in the nest the babies are growing like weeds.

To be continued.

Meanwhile  back in crowded dove nest there's lots of moving around. Very alert babies.

More dove babies

These are from the 31st. When I see green babies I've got to document it. The kids are fine, healthy, doing what they should be doing. Green kids. Parents beak tip is also green.  Eating spinach? Pesto?

There's activity at the cardinal nest.  I suspect somebody has hatched.

Young robin trying to figure out how to find food.
This is all going on in one small space.... look up, look west, look north, look straight ahead. No climbing necessary.
