Our yards at home continue to be busy and we still have both Red-breasted and Brown-headed Nuthatches. More fun to watch, though, are our Carolina Wrens. We always have an adult pair.
Now the adults have two young, which they regularly lead around our backyard, with each parent normally taking charge of one youngster. The young birds often stay on the fence while the parents go and bring them food, from our feeders or from the garden.
Sometimes waiting to be fed can be very tiring.
The birding scene at CyFair has been quieter than usual so far this migration season, so I was pleased when a few Indigo Buntings showed up earlier this week.
Luckily, Cedar Waxwings are still with us, although the flock of 1,000+ that we had has now shrunk to a few dozen.
I'll be quite sad when the last of the Waxwings head north, which I suspect will be fairly soon. They are such extraordinarily beautiful birds!
