My backyard is a McDonald’s play station for baby birdies. Grackle, cardinal, downy woodpecker, starling, and blue jay parents are teaching their young how to maneuver around the various feeders and birdbaths. It’s quite a show. Sid, with one of his two young girls, Nanette, was such a huge hit yesterday with my small group of FrontBurnervian Birders, that I’ve posted another picture of the loving father. Debuting today, Junior, the new downy trying to hold on to the suet feeder. Tra la, enjoy.
