I decided to do some birdwatching on a lovely June morning at Humber Bay. Clearly the egg stage of many species is now finished and chicks are out exploring the world. I was able to photograph chicks of 6 different species.
I will identify it at the end of the post.
Some chicks that I have photographed in the past:
No wing bars and lack of black borders on the eyebrow stripe indicate Warbling Vireo. (still singing at Humber Bay)
What does little baby say,
In her bed at peep of day?
Baby says, like little birdie,
“Let me rise and fly away.”
“Baby sleep, a little longer,
Till the little limbs are stronger.”
If she sleeps a little longer,
Baby too shall fly away. – Alfred, Lord Tennyson
