Fledgling Admiration

Baby and Poppa Bird

Baby and Poppa Bird

This little bird is new to the world and has been sticking near its parents as you will see in this four photo post! I saw the little house sparrow hop over to stand close to its father on top of this pole. They seem to be admiring each other. I never knew the male birds gave much attention to the fledglings but this one has stayed near.

The mother bird has also stayed close and I saw her feeding this baby with food from my feeder! I just wasn’t fast enough to get the picture. The baby seems to be getting its wings but still seems a little discoordinated. In fact, it landed right on its mother before fluttering up and over to the next fence grid.

Here is a moment of independence for baby…but the family stayed near. I think the baby is an only child!



I saved my favorite picture for last. It isn’t as clear because I took it through the blinds and screen of my back door. This was my first sighting of the little bird and its Momma! I think it was just learning to fly…this may have been the first family flight! I was so happy when I saw them on my back porch. This candid family picture warms my heart!

I am in awe of nature and the beauty of all my backyard birds. I am amazed at the loving care this bird family seems to display. Family ties are something I admire!

  3. Beautiful. I used to love watching the blackbirds feeding their young on our back lawn in the cottage. The fluttering of their wings was just amazing, a sort of flagged ‘Feed me, feed me’.
    We had sparrows too, we could hear them in the hedge and bushes, thugh they tended to be more elusive than the bigger birds. Birds make me feel humble, petty and pathetic…. they thrive against the elements, no centrally heated or double glazed homes with indoor plumbing for them.


  4. Great photos of these lovely birds! 🙂
