This Years First Brood of Sparrows

Birds on a Wire ......

One of this years newest members of the local sparrow flock sits on the clothesline as momma brings him breakfast from the feeder. At this time of year the parents bring their young to the feeder on our porch, feed them several times from it and then leave them to figure it out. Some pick it up faster than others but it doesn't usually take too long to get the hang of it.

So far this year we have seen this behaviour in several different birds, the sparrows of course, two Brewer's Blackbirds and a purple finch all have brought their young to the feeder, where they take the final step in 'kicking the out of the nest'.
