Evening Grosbeak Feeding Young

On Sunday, an Evening Grosbeak was feeding two fledglings. Since the first fledglings appeared in late June, this is possibly a second brood. The young were attentive to Dad with lots of wing fluttering, but otherwise almost silent, unlike the young who have been out of the nest for a few days and are hoping that the free meals will continue indefinitely.

Meanwhile, close by a young Northern Cardinal awaited its opportunity ...

Good Birding!!
