What’s Up? – Heatwave, Juveniles

Heatwave, Juveniles…


Very soon we’ll be hit by a heatwave going through the country, from the West to East Coast. Our forecast calls for that and additional will be summer showers, I just imagine it will be charged with humidity. Yuck!

Next, I’m making some comments about what has been happening with birds in my backyard.

  • I’ve seen many Common Grackles lately. Males, females and their broods. I had the opportunity to photograph a father and juvenile sharing their meals.

  • I also photographed a mother Brown-headed Cowbird feeding her juvenile.

  1. We’re awash in grackle families just now. Pity the poor grackle parent trying to get the kids to feed on their own. Why do that, if you can raise a ruckus and get mom and dad to keep up the routine!
