And fleeing avoidant parents!

In the last 2 days, have watched tree swallow fledglings, cedar waxwing fledglings, bluebird fledglings, robin fledglings, redwinged blackbird fledglings, grackle fledglings, American crow fledglings and am currently listening to the incessant pleading of red tailed hawk fledglings. The house wrens are back in every box for round two, apparently.

I watched one of a brood of recently fledged tree swallows take off over the Hile School Rd wetland, find its parent in mid-air, follow until the parent turned and they did a pas de deux while apparently the fledger got fed in mid-air. Bills opened and touched. Then the little one flew back to the small tree where its siblings were all perched.

Waiting to see some green heron fledglings in the wetland.
