The Tree Swallows in the gardens are so entertaining to watch. I watched for a short time while a pair of Tree Swallows were building their nest in one of the house I provided for them on the edge of the garden. I love how many bugs they eat that never make it to my garden.  Very Happy

Went out to check the tomatoes, and was surprised by a baby Robin sitting on the tomato cage waiting on momma to feed it.

YEE-HAH! HAPPY ENDING! This morning, I found one of these guys flopping around on the bedroom balcony, evidently hit the slider and got its little bell rung. I captured it and tried to let it go in a snag behind the garage, but it went limp and I thought it was a goner. I put it in a container in a dark room and checked on it every few minutes.

At first there was no change. Then I found it sitting up, but very still. About an hour later, Bob went in to see how it was and it flew to the back of the carrier, so we knew it had recovered and was ready to go.

Like a dummy, I reached in to get it, instead of taking the carrier out to the balcony and just opening the door (I have to do everything the hard way Rolling Eyes ) Anyway, it screamed, flapped, squirmed and bit all the way from the back bedroom to the balcony. Luckily, Bob was there to open the door for me. I barely made it before he escaped and flew away. I didn't here him say thank you, but I'm sure he did and I just missed it. Rolling Eyes

OG, nice!  I love babies too!  That is a fresh one!

CN, glad it worked out; you never know.  Those stunned birds sometimes do fine, and takes them a long time!

Here are 4 birds on one little sunflower plant on the kitchen balcony. From now on, I want sunflowers everywhere (which is very easy to achieve with all the seeds we hand out). Razz

I love finches. This morning, a whole flock landed in the tall crepe myrtle and chattered away. Then they all flew across the street to another tree.

When we lived in So Cal, Bob used to hand water the backyard bushes. The finches would flock to him as he aimed the hose high into the oleanders, so they could have a nice shower on a hot day. It became a standing joke: "Where's your dad?" "He's out back, watering the finches." darn funny

Goldfinches love sunflowers And Echinacea!  I always leave my spent flowers through winter, they eat them all year long.  They molt like 4 times a year, so here, by winter, they are a dull grey and fit right in to the environment!  

We also have red/pink house finches here, they are pretty and plentiful, and practically tame!  I love them too!
