Babies in Backyard

Walking around in my backyard can bring many surprises. I had my camera with me this time. Looking up in the trees where I know bird nests are, I found this surprise looking back at me. The male and female parents were fussing at me as I was a little too close to their babies.

I moved very slowly and took a few photos, then came back inside. I do not want to be attacked or have the birds leave the nest too soon. You have to be very careful while getting close to these bird babies.

Care to guess what these birds are? I had to hold the camera as high as possible to get these. The nest was built high in the pine tree.

I will reveal the answer soon!

Enjoy nature photography. Amateur self-taught photographer and love every minute of the photos from my yard and Dustin's garden. Sunset views from my deck are very peaceful to watch, capture and share. I have two cats, Brendel and the Dude. I share both special and funny moments I capture of them with you.

Also enjoy seeing and reading your posts from all over the world.

    And the answer is Robin!

    • Absolutely I used the zoom. My knees are still not 100%, so no ladders for me. And the parents would have probably attacked if I had gotten any closer. They were chirping away nearby as I stood there. Thanks, they are so cool to see.

    • These are robins. Remember I showed the male and female robins with food in another post? They were going to feed these babies. This is what I have had no bluebirds this year. The robins have taken over the yard.
