More babies

Two new fledglings in the yard tonight - an itty bitty little baby sparrow that we think is a chipping sparrow (would make sense since we have so many of them around), and a young red-breasted grosbeak being fed by its daddy.

From the sounds of it, the tree swallows out back are going to be leaving the nesting box soon (and it looks like mom and dad are already working on their second brood of the year, based on their activities on the clothesline tonight). When we walked the puppy down the laneway/driveway tonight, I could hear the baby bluebirds peeping away in their box.

I need to play around with our feeder set-up so I can try to get some pictures of all these cute little babies before they get their adult feathers in.
