On Guard


I'm so excited! I am expecting (well not personally, ha!) Tree Swallow babies!  How about you? Do you have any bird babies in your yard yet?

Is that the father waiting expectently for the stork to arrive?

I've seen a few babies at the feeders begging for food from their parents.

How cool! Great picture, Shelley. I'm sure they will be fun to watch.

Kelly said...

...yeah! Swallow babies are so cute! We have baby House Wrens! :-)

We have baby humming birds -- I think. Definitely baby house finches and house sparrows.

Great news Shelley. :-)

Lots of Robins hanging around, but they haven't brought any babies around yet. Baby sparrows, etc. Nice shot of your Tree Swallow.

Very pretty! We do have a nest under a shed roof, but it's where I can't see any activity, and I know there are babies in the woods around our yard, but they are pretty well hidden. I did see a bunch of barn swallow babies today on the barns at Creamer's Field, loudly demanding to be fed.

We have had lots of babys this year ,but no birds as good looking as your Swallow.

Oh cool... I almost saw that one in Iceland, the last storm brought one that every single birder went to see as it was the first observation in Iceland, but I came back two days too late from Manchester where I was... It's probably pretty cool to have them nesting around your house ;-)

Super news Shelley. Just a few young Sparrows here. Blue Tits have used three seperate boxes but no sign of any youngsters!

Hi ya Shelley, long time no see. Good to see you have company. I think most of ours have flown their nests now. There is always next year to look forward to. Thanks for such great photo's again

We had some bluebirds initially, but they abandoned the nestbox after a few weeks. Did you get photos of the babies?
