Baby Birds in the Yard
This weekend saw fledging of noisy, begging Lesser Goldfinches (which apparently have no fear of humans – this was taken with a small camera) and hatching of Mourning Doves in the back yard. The dove nest was found a week and a half earlier by Marvin, visiting from Germany. The parent must have been incubating eggs then, as the shell in the nest shows the second one hatched shortly before I flushed the parent off the nest Sunday morning.
