Post by: Shortsighted on July 08, 2021, 07:06:14 pm
Nothing much is happening in the backyard lately except a chipping sparrow did show up to feed its fledgling.

That's very nice, at least it isn't feeding a cowbird baby that I more often see in my neighborhood.

We used to have a pair nest regularly in a small blue spruce topiary just in front of our house....perfect height to look down and see what was going on....and I noticed too that they were often victimized by BHCB's.....stupid moron contractor took the spruce out...he wasn't supposed to....


Great pix!
