Baby Birds Galore

This is a baby birds edition, just because of the number of little video clips that I have to share from the last few days. None of the babies are abandoned, the parents have retreated to the tree tops, raining avian curses upon me, as I, the mysterious stranger, wave my mobile phone over them like a wand. They safely got back to feeding the fledgling once I had gone indoors.

Baby grackle ( just fledged today, with anxious parents kekking above in the trees)

Finally, after many, many months, a turkey sighting- a hen with four chicks. This is the first time in years that I haven’t seen any in the spring or early summer.

Sunrise Chaser

That’s what I have become these days. Soon after the time shift, instead of chasing the moon set, I have now become addicted to capturing the colors of sunrise. The colors may last only a few minutes, dulling to more muted shades. But we have been having some truly beautiful and vivid sunrises. Here’s a photo sampling.
