Today I was just heading out the door when I heard the cooing of the red headed baby. Looking out the window. I saw him there near the feeder on the poll. Grabbed my camera. Not missing this. It took it a few tries but it did it. Its Dad has been trying to call it in last couple days. He sits there and chatters at the babes in the trees and then goes and feeds them. I am not getting good enough view for photos. But can catch a glimpse. Yesterday this young one started to come closer to the feeder. It wanted to come down but always went back up with adult. Today it was hanging around with the parent but also staying when the parent flew off. I would say this is the first born. The second one has a lighter more immature color to its head. Have not seen the 3rd one yet. When this little one got a taste of the peanuts. Boy he was there for a while. I went out and he didn't even move off. Although I did not go close. All my shots are taken through the windows. I don't want to disturb the family's teaching the little ones. Before long migration will begin. This one was hanging there eating and when the peanuts dropped on his belly he just reached down with that long beak and picked them up. He really had a good feast. And when I got home he was still going back and forth to the feeder. Dad keeping a close eye on him later in the day. The action has begun. !!!!
