You put such good words 'in their mouths'. Nice job. BTW, the Peacocks now have babies.

The Retired One said...

They are noisy! But nothing compared to the two CROWS that have found our feeder every morning at 5:30AM....Good Lord, I hope they find some road kill soon...I need my sleep!

Put a smile on my face before work.

Boy did this bring back memories Shelley!! What a bunch of brats baby grackles are! I don't have any here, thank goodness! Ha Ha Ha this was a very funny post!

fishing guy said...

Shelly: I have seen this at my feeders and laugh. The babies are as big as the parents.

Rural Rambler said...

That is one BIG baby bird and what a fun funny start to my morning!

Great picture series!

Cute post Shelley!

Great post. Pretty birds.

Mary said...

Very cute! They do seem to whine a lot. I always laugh at the "babies" that are bigger than the parent birds...surely worn out from feeding them all the time! That Robin is so pretty!

ROFL Shell. You are the true bird whisperer. :D Don't baby grackles cause a ruckus!!!

I loooove my baby robins.

Great post and photos!!! Super wit. The world needs you.

Hugs, JJ

Baby birds are so cute and so demanding! Great post and pictures!

HANNIBAL said...

You said it all for them! Cute! Nice photos to go along with the captions!

Andrea said...

Awesome photo story!!

Deb said...

Thanks for a good laugh this morning Shelley! I feel so sorry for the poor Mum's ... the little ones are so noisy :-) I could imagine her saying all the little "thoughts" you wrote too :-)

Heather said...

Your narrative here is so great, Shelley! We have lots of different baby birds coming into the feeders w/their parents right now. The Titmice are THE loudest, and the Cardinals are the most persistent.

Jen said...

They all sure do have their own personalities don't they?
Some better than others.

Elaine said...

I love this post! Wonderful photos and great captions.

Deborah Godin said...

This sure made me laugh!! (as always) And so true, it's "wheezin' season" around my yard, too.

Montanagirl said...

Very cute post, Shelley. Visit my blog today- you'll see the baby Robins are just as bad - or should I say good - at begging and whining! (lol)

Jenny said...

As bad as baby Starlings it looks like! (-: Great shots Shelley.

BirdingMaine said...

Great photos and captions! They fit perfectly.

Chris said...

Hi Shelley,
Oh gosh, I'm still laughing at it... Excellent, both the humour and the shots!!! How long did it take to get all sequence???
Wonderful!

Bird World Blog said...

Awesome post!

JKoenig said...

Thank you for your kind words regarding my blog and the suggestion about a followers gadget. I tried several times to do that, but with no success. Apparently that is experimental and not everyone has access to it. I did add myself to your followers though. I really enjoy your blog.

Daisy said...

HA HA! Demanding little critter, isn't he? Love your sense of humor, Shelley. Thanks for making me smile. :D

The Birdlady said...

Oh Shelley, how wonderful!

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Oh Shell----this is just so cute... I can almost hear those birds really saying those things!!!!!

You are just so creative

AND--your photos are amazing.
Love you,
Bets

Baby birds are SO funny! I love to watch the little ones flutter their wings, waiting for someone to feed them!

Bird Girl said...

Cute, Shelley! But these grackles are driving me CRAZY! No other birds have a chance at the feeder - so I had to stop feeding for awhile - they are right up there with starlings as far as pests! Love that baby robin!

Knatolee said...

I love this time of year, with all the hungry baby birds running around our garden!

Abe Lincoln said...

It looks like you have some babies begging there like we do here. All nice ones too.

jalynn01 said...

All the babies are out and about and so cute. The grackles and starling babies are even cute but what pains they can be!Love your Baby Robin and your captions.

Judy said...

What a cute post Shelley...I'm still laughing.

Joycee said...

Hilarious! Those grackles are so annoying. I know God made them too but they are noisy, dirty birds!
