Young Ones

Goslings

Been seeing lots of new families coming to our backyard feeder which reminded me that I had a few pictures of newborns/fledglings from earlier this spring to post.

These Canada geese had at least 14 in their brood, usually I see 6-8. Per various sources the average brood size seems to be 4-7.

Like cats, I think they are so much cuter when they are little.

These robins nested in a hanging geranium plant at a relative’s house.

Grackle Fledgling

Grackles routinely nest in the cover of the propane tank at a friend’s house. We popped the top to take a peek thinking the birds were still small and this guy jumped out. We got him back in the nest just in time for mom returning with some goodies.

    Delightful post about new babies. I am having such fun watching the interactions between parent and baby birds in my yard.
