It was very windy today. This little guy was trying to get some respite, but the hole just wasn’t big enough.
The starlings have mostly outgrown their fluffy stage. They’re more teenagers now. Throwing food around as well as their weight.
Our bird feeder has turned into a nursery. Birdmoms drop the kids off at the buffet for a while and fly off to do some chores.
Found this guy buried in my plant pots as I was digging this afternoon. No idea who is in there, but I put him back and wish him well.
Would you look at this pudgy baby bird!?
The other thing we did recently was put an insect hotel in the garden. Today I peeked inside and found little fuzzy bee butts in residence.
At the start of lockdown I bought a bird feeder for the front yard. We have a bunch of regulars who drop by every day. The most regular is a mated pair of blackbirds.
Today we met the youngest of the family.
Found this little beauty sheltering for the day in one of out plant pots.
