Baby Birds Leave the Nest

This afternoon, I was lucky enough to see some baby birds leaving the nest for the first time. It was quite the sight...there were three babies (that I could find) hopping around our yard...with the parents chirping and flying overhead. It was so amusing to the see the babies learning to use their wings. They were teeny tiny - at the most a couple inches in size - and could actually move quite quickly - I was thrilled to get a decent picture of each of one. Within just a few minutes they were all flying and off on a new adventure!

  1. I also love photographing birds. Its always sad to see them leave. Its over in a couple of minutes and if we are lucky we get a few shots with the camera to remember them.

  2. Aren't they adorable with that little bit of baby fluff still clinging to them! What a wonderful way to spend part of an afternoon. Thanks for posting the pics, Belinda.

  4. Thanks for the photos - you can see how well Valerie Pfiffer (sp?) gets her inspiration for her baby birds...that little hint of fluff!

    1. The baby birds in my photo are Sparrows. You can do a Google search for "baby sparrow images" to see more.
