Young Birdwatchers

When I last visited with the twins, which I do about once a month I was watching birds in their backyard with my binoculars and one of the twins asked me to buy her 'nocs' the next time I came.  So....  I brought them each a pair and they were very much into it.
Through out the week we had many activities but it always came back to the 'nocs' and birds.

 On a sunny day.....
 Or a rainy day......

 one of them seemed to have the 'nocs'
 chasing around and blowing dandelions was also a hit
 When it got to 80 one day we broke out the watering can
 And on my last day we got out the Barbie jeep and you can see....
 how much fun that was!!
 There are two 
Grackle nests in their pine trees and I did get this picture
the nests are concealed but the birds are in and out.  Each time they saw a different bird I would show them on my phone and let them listen to the song.  The catbird was their favorite!

Grosbeak Misery

A Rose-breasted Grosbeak hits the window and almost bites the dust!
 He sat here on the deck for almost an hour with his eyes shut.

Then with a little coaxing he flew up to the deck railing

You can tell he is young by the brown still visible on his feathers
The next day I saw him with two females on the back feeder.
Was glad he made it.
