Fledgling Fevver Friday

As always, biggify the pictures for maximum enjoyment. Mum found the grackel's nesting up high in our pine tree. She didn't get any pictures of the birdies on the nest, they would go away whenever she pointed the camera up there, even when she was standing far away. You can even see Mr Moon up above the tree.
So now we have some of the new baby fevver birdies showing up with their mum's and dads.
Here the little one is sitting in the crabby apple tree waiting to get some yummy that his mum had just pecked off the suet feeder.
On another day they were over by the seed feeder, while the little bird can fly, it would not fly up to the feeder, so mum had to keep going up and down to the feeder to get goodies.
Then they went over by the birdie bath for a drink, the little one didn't even try to drink. I hope he learns quick, cuz his mum will soon make him do it himself.
The robin checking out for bugs or worms in the lawn.
The baby waiting on the side of the patio for mum to find him a snack.

Hey, this is my blog, where is my picture?
Yeah, that is better, me waiting for her to turn on the puter box so I can share my life with you. I had extra mum time yesterday, she didn't go day hunting but was in and out taking Grampie to the bean VET for his regular check-up. He is fine, come back in a year.

Happy weekend everyone.

What an interesting time you must have watching all those fevvers, Derby! We have had fewer fevvers in our garden than we do most summers. But my mum has been spending lots of time watching her class's butterflies, only now they have been released and flown away to live their butterfly lives.
Have a nice weekend with your mum!

It's sweet seeing the momma birdie take care of the baby birdie!

I know some people don't like grackels but not me, I love 'em! I like that they can make all kinds of different noises. We only get one near the yard every blue moon, though. They prefer a different part of the city.

My mom sees them every now and again when she goes to Petsmart. And you know what? She always talks to them! Yes, it's true: she always says, "Hi, grackel!" Isn't that silly? I wonder if the grackel thinks, "Hi, lady."

We like to see birds up close and personal, but even better was that the best picture was saved for last.
