I have chronicled plenty juvenile surprises having traveled to New York City and roaming the backwoods of Dallas / Fort Worth this summer.
A baby mockingbird more daring than its parents.
A juvenile cardinal waiting for its beak to turn brilliant orange.
An infant starling waits patiently for food.
A family of red-bellied woodpeckers (the infant has a solid white head).
It requires so much energy for this infant house finch to perch on our fence.
This infant barn swallow somehow perched perfectly on a street sign.
A baby robin enjoys the first rays of a New York City morning sun.
Infant spoiled grackles demand food - most notably fast-food french fries.
A baby indigo bunting without the indigo.
A blue bird sporting familiar markings of a typical thrush.
Majestic Western Kingbirds playing around.
My backyard will always be home to loving house sparrows.
