Squabs Leaving the Nest   Leave a comment

Here are later pictures of the two squabs that were raised this Spring in our backyard, on top of our outdoor speaker. Based on the hair on their heads, I called them Scruffy and Baldy.

This is Scruffy after having left the nest, finding its bearings in our backyard:

Baldy had already claimed the top of the fence as his perch:

Here is the first of two posts chronicling that journey. Click on any image to see them in slideshow format:
