This week’s photo, taken July 28, 2017 at Richmond Beach Park in Shoreline, WA, features a fledgling SONG SPARROW (on the left) begging to be fed by its parent.
Speaking of birds raising their young, I recently viewed a remarkable video. I rarely use this space to recommend other people’s bird-related stuff – basically because this blog is all about me and my birds :). However, this video is so outstanding, I must share.
I know. Your time limit for viewing online videos is about one minute max, and the video I speak of is 22 minutes long, so there’s no way you are going to watch it, right? Well, if a miracle occurs and you find the time, you won’t regret it. Pay particular attention at the 11:12 mark because you will witness something most of us have probably never seen before (I certainly hadn’t). Can you say “fecal sac?”
Birds are truly amazing.
