Too Young To Squawk

Posted by terrepruitt on July 1, 2019

This past weekend we were up at my parents’ house preparing for an estate sale. Some of the neighbors were having a garage sale, so we decided to put out a few items. While we were hanging out hoping for people to show up we were being entertained by some young blue jays. I was obsessed with them because I thought they were sooooo cute. They seem to hang out in the trees and bushes in the yard in front of the house. As is my M.O., I didn’t think to take pictures or video them until it was almost too late. I didn’t want to get that close. There was one that just kept up the chatter. They were all so cute. There were three. They still had their little fluff. They will be gone the next time we are up there.

It seemed to me that they hadn’t quite learned the blue jay squawk yet, they were still chirping.  When I first started watching them they were not squawking AT ALL.  But as the day wore on, they would do it in between chirps.  I wish I would have caught the constant chirping on video. I could not get enough of them.

 

Do you get to see baby birds in your area?  What types?

  1. This spring I saw many baby geese, perhaps fifteen to twenty or more, with one set of parents at a near-by pond. I was amazed to see so many. They had their hands (or wings) full.
