Pure Instinct

In case you hadn’t noticed, I love watching my backyard birds. I am learning how long they take care of their babies! It was fascinating to see all the male birds feeding their babies too! This bright red cardinal brought bite after bite of food from my feeder up to the fledgling!

I also saw this colorful house finch carrying food up to his baby in my dogwood tree!

Not to be outdone, this dark,iridescent starling watched over its baby in my oak tree and showed it how things should be done.

I previously shared posts about the nurturing ways of the downy woodpecker and of the house sparrow if you care to take a look. For more bird posts, you can click on the bird header at the top of the page! I have become obsessed with the pure beauty, color, features, and instinctive nature of birds.

  5. I so remember the blackbird fledglings in our back garden when we were in the cottage. I wrote a post on a fledgling that appeared to be orphaned. If I may?
