Subject: [VTBIRD] What new baby birds in your yard
Just looked out the window and saw a Chipping Sparrow and fledgling on the
feeder and started to think about what else was out there this season.
So far this year;
Canada Goose 2 pr with 17 goslings
Mallard 3pr with 9 duckling left at this point
Hairy Woodpecker 1pr 3 young
Rose-breasted Grosbeak 1pr with 2 babies 1m 1f
Song Sparrows and babies every morning
Common Yellow throat Warbler
All these birds have showed up in the yard with babies this year. Never
thought about it, till now. Nice!
