Fecal Sac

4B3A0287

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.

    Love those yellow edges to the beak, can tell which is the baby just by that.

    Thx Joe. It was a remarkable video. It was not until I went to my larger computer that I saw the fecal sac. Pretty remarkable. Thx, Judy
