Not the greatest photos nor the rarest birds, but these shots were taken within an hour or so of each other in my backyard.  Busy day.

I'm not sure, but I think that the Great Crested Flycatcher fledgeling may have taken its first flight just after this shot.  Is the timing about right?  Experts?

It looks like the Cardinal and the Starling are feeding the same type of bird.  Do their young look similar?

I would suggest that the young cardinal is, in fact, a young Brown Headed Cowbird.
