Teenage Birds.

We are presently gobsmacked at how quickly three tiny blackbirds have become fluttery juveniles. I'd say their bodies are almost as big as they'll get, they just lack tailfeathers and proper wings.

They are fluttering round under things in the backyard. There are sudden rustlings near you and a bird flaps out and off to the next bush or low branch. It's very cute.

The parents aren't constantly flying in with with beaks full of food. They seem to just be supervising.

So very glad the yard is now cat-free.

They sound so adorable.
What kind of birds are they?
We have ducks, willy wagtails and kookaburras regularly around. I'm sure there's heaps more but I haven't seen them up close.

I'm glad your kitty is inside.

In my old place I was cutting back blackberries and I exposed a nest accidentally. :( And it had eggs, they hatched and all went missing one by one, I feel horrible about it.

I envy you your wildlife!

Just blackbirds. We've got a few native birds, and some come and go. Magpies, wattlebirds, ravens, we've had little silvereyes. Rosellas visit occasionally. But otherwise it's sparrows, a couple of pigeons, these guys and mynah birds.

If more people round here planted the right sort of plants....*sigh*

I had a blackbird nest in a tree just outside w window. perfect for bird watching. I think blackbirds are one of the fastest to fledge...and they sing so beautifully.
