And fleeing avoidant parents!
In the last 2 days, have watched tree swallow fledglings, cedar waxwing
fledglings, bluebird fledglings, robin fledglings, redwinged blackbird
fledglings, grackle fledglings, American crow fledglings and am currently
listening to the incessant pleading of red tailed hawk fledglings. The house
wrens are back in every box for round two, apparently.
I watched one of a brood of recently fledged tree swallows take off over the
Hile School Rd wetland, find its parent in mid-air, follow until the parent
turned and they did a pas de deux while apparently the fledger got fed in
mid-air. Bills opened and touched. Then the little one flew back to the small
tree where its siblings were all perched.
Waiting to see some green heron fledglings in the wetland.
