Its that time of year when we see the young birds around our yard, learning to fly and being fed by their parents. Here's a young female Cardinal. (Click to enlarge any photo).
And a baby Sparrow being fed by a parent.
A few days ago, we had our second visit by a Northern Flicker, a male this time. We had a female here last Memorial Day but hadn't seen one since then. He has a bright red "Y" shaped marking on the back of his head. As he flew off, I saw the flash of his yellow tail feathers which are characteristic of the Eastern version of this species.
All photos taken with Nikon D300s and Nikkor 70-200mm VRII lens at 200mm and heavily cropped.
