Baby Birds

Daughter Jenny's back yard is full of plants and trees that attract birds.  Last week we stopped to visit with Jenn and the boys and sat in the back yard watching the birds.

Like this house finch,

...and this red-wing blackbird

 But my favorite was this mama robin

and her babies under the deck in Jenn's yard.

In a lovely coincidence, on the last day of high school for Jenn and Ander's oldest son, Jonah,

the baby birds left their safe nest and flew off on their own adventures...the cycle of life.

I love this time of year and watching birds is a favorite thing for me. We too have some baby birds. A wren has nested in our bird house so we haven't seen them yet but she keeps flying in and out with food for the babies.


I love birds. They are so sweet. Great pics. Your grandson is quite handsome.

Lovely! We do love birds! Leaving the nest -happy and sad time!

This time of year there is a lot of talk of leaving the nest. My grandson is leaving for Portland on his own. Just wants an adventure. Yikes.

There is not a bird more photogenic than a Red Winged Blackbird.
