Comments:

Fledglings are leaving nests and providing great observations for birders as parents tend them. Today's baby bird sightings included robins, Song Sparrows, and sandpipers. Meanwhile, nesting activities are still underway for many birds. Robins and Cedar Waxwings were seen gathering nesting material. Birding is at its finest with beautiful breeding plumages and so much interesting behavior to take in. July sessions shift back a half-hour to start at 6:30am. Join us for more excellent birding!
