Three weeks ago I posted photos on my picture blog of a dove gathering twigs and building a nest in a tree in front of my house. If you want to see them you can do so here…Gathering Twigs .
I was excited and hoping I would be seeing baby doves around my place. Well to my sadness and disappointment that will not happen. Blue Jays scared her away and took over the tree.
There is no shortage of babies around my place this year though. There are baby wrens, woodpeckers, finches, blue grosbeaks, robins, grakels, cardinals, sparrows, mockingbirds and lots of these little critters…they are so cute.
In these photos he looks larger than what he actually is, he is a little one. The rail he is sitting on is 6 inches wide so that gives an idea of how small he is.
There have never been baby grosbeaks of any kind at my place but there are lots of the blue grosbeaks this year. I was able to get these photos a few weeks ago.
I saw this young wren about the same time as I saw the blue grosbeaks and got these shots.
There is also an abundance of baby lizards. There is one that I talk to every time I go outside if I see it around. He is usually on the ramp or nearby. Bless him, when I went out this morning I noticed he has already lost his tail. He sat and listened and watched me while I talked to him like he always does. I will keep an eye on him and hope that he survives.
Do you talk to wildlife or anything else that cannot talk?
