The Eastern Bluebird (Sialia sialis) is a small migratory thrush found in open woodlands, farmlands, and orchards. It is the state bird of Missouri and New York.
These three flegling bluebirds have left the birdhouse (they have grown too big to fit in it). I found them in my patio. The parents were feeding them at all times, they are staying under some bushes under the care of their dedicated parents.

European Starlings

Large flocks typical of this species can be beneficial to agriculture by controlling invertebrate pests; however, starlings can also be pests themselves when they feed on fruit and sprouting crops Starlings may also be a nuisance through the noise and mess caused by their large urban roosts. Introduced populations in particular have been subjected to a range of controls, including culling, but these have had limited success, except in preventing the colonization of Western Australia.

American Robin

The American Robin is active mostly during the day and assembles in large flocks at night. Its diet consists of invertebrates (such as beetle grubs, earthworms, and caterpillars), fruits, and berries. It is one of the earliest bird species to lay its eggs, beginning to breed shortly after returning to its summer range from its winter range.
