Visiting Young Ones

Posted by terrepruitt on November 9, 2020

In June, I believe we had three baby crows that visited our yard. I don’t know for certain because to me young birds (“babies”) look very much like older birds. Actually, young birds often look larger than adult birds, at least in the case of blue jays. From what I have seen in the past the young birds still have their fluff so they sometimes look larger. The fluff isn’t always easy to discern so originally I thought the larger birds were adults. We used to have baby blue jays in our yard every year and watching them it was clear they were not adults. They were so awkward and silly, whereas the adults were very precise. These three birds we had in June were silly. They liked to take bathes — as did all of our blue jay babies in the past. These crows seemed to play and explore, then one by one they were gone.

I had never seen a crow in the bird bath so it was really exciting to see these black beauties hop around and in the bath. They were really gone too soon for my liking.

I know the pictures are not great, sorry, but I took them through screens and windows because the crows would stop their antics when they noticed us watching. In a couple of shots you can see that they noticed me.

Maybe they will remember it was a safe place and they will bring their babies here.

I love our yard birds.  Do you have yard animals?

  1. In a way, yes. Our apt overlooks a dog park. Our cats look out the window all day long.

    I love watching the birds in the backyard. We have blue jays, cardinals, doves and sparrows. Sometimes crows, but they like the trees and don’t come to the yard much. My cat enjoys sitting at the window watching too.

    • Yes. My hubby and I love watching the birds. We have name a few. We have mourning doves, blue jays, what I believe are House finches and gold finches (some from Twitter said that is what they are), hummingbirds and various other birds that we don’t know what they are. One is Chirpy McChirperson (I may have misspelled that, I would have to check with my husband as he is the one that named him) and I don’t now what he is. He has a white underbelly and is black on top with a little mohawk. And he is so chirpy. He doesn’t GO in the bath, he just kinda skims it. He is very entertaining!
