So Many Baby Birds, But . . .
I saw SO MANY baby birds yesterday! I Spent 8 hours in a tent in my back yard trying to get a photo of the baby Red-breasted Grosbeak we saw early in the morning. But I never caught a glimpse of him again. For one thing, there are TOO MANY SPARROWS in my yard!
I'm not kidding. We have WAY TOO MANY sparrows right now. Either House Sparrows have giant broods or there were thousands of them to start with.
It's like being overrun with rodents (which are also in far too plentiful a supply!)
But as much as they aggravate me, I can't hate them. It's not their fault they were introduced to an environment where they thrive much more than native species.
They can also be very cute. The females always look so happy - and how can you resist a daddy sparrow helping his offspring learn how to survive!
