Fledglings abound

Boy, there are more and more baby birds leaving the nest (fledging). Nesting is in full gear for many species, but a number of species are completing a first nesting and will start a second nesting soon.

One of the early nesters is the American Robin. This fledgling had only recently fledged (left the nest) and it stayed in the relative protection of a porch roof with protective tree branches shading and camouflaging it. It's several siblings were busy flying from branch to branch begging the parents for food, and occasionally trying to eat some of the berry-like fruit that the tree in the photo provided.
