After reading about baby wood pigeons on Daffy's blog and fledgling blackbirds on Louise's, I decided to go and have another look outside for my baby nuthatches. It was about 6 p.m., a time when there seems to be a lot of feeding and fluttering going on ......oh my! I'm sure I felt the same excitement as Flighty when he found young Frog Newton! There were two "somethings" perched on the clothesline...possibly Peter and Paul, because one flew away...
I really enjoyed watching their little fluttery feather antics. I'm not sure how many youngster all told, but there was much activity.
Here is a collection of my baby nuthatches, including a little video so you can hear their chirpings:
I have heard a lot of humming going on in the backyard as well, and I just happened to get a shot of what I think is a female rufous hummingbird in the process of picking something off a web:
Tomorrow is Sunday, and I can spend more time outside with these lovely little creatures :)
