Feed Me!


We are surrounded by noisy fledglings at the moment, thrashers, cactus wrens, house finches and lesser goldfinches like this one. It is funny to watch the frazzled parents feed them and then turn their back as if they are trying to tune out the constant cheeping. I am still on the lookout for my first batch of baby quail.

So cute. Nice photo too. We haven't any walking walnuts yet either. Soon. Lets hope.

Thanks Kelly. I love how everyone has different names for baby quail - walking walnuts, feathered popcorn, bumble bees on legs! Can't wait for their arrival :)
