Home Spun comic strip #634
There are lots of baby birds in our yard right now. We have seen many fledgelings following their parents around in the trees, taking field trips to our feeders, and practicing singing. You can tell they are still babies because they sound like off-key versions of the adults. And yes, I do call them teenagers. They can fly fairly well and eat by themselves, but if mom or dad come near they fluff and scream and beg. It just shows that even if you are physically capable of doing things on your own, it doesn't mean you can't still use some reassurance and assistance from mom and dad.
