PHOTOS OF THE WEEK

ACTIVE PLAYERS THIS WEEK AT MY HOUSE
I FLUSHED HALF-A-DOZEN YOUNG GROUSE AT THE DGE OF OUR WOODS. BARELY ABLE TO FLY, THEY FLUTTERED WEAKLY AWAY, PEEPING LOUDLY FOR PARENTAL ASSISTANCE.

 OUR RESIDENT BLUE JAYS JUST FLEDGED THEIR YOUNGSTERS. VERY QUIET WHILE NESTING, THEY HAVE RESUMED THEIR NOISY WAYS, NOW THAT THEIR BROOD HAS LEFT THE NEST.


EVEN THOUGH OUR PLACE IS HEAVILY WOODED, WE GET NESTING CATBIRDS AT THE EDGE OF THE YARD EVERY YEAR. I ATTRIBUTE THIS TO A TANGLE OF HONEYSUCKLE THAT HAS INVADED THE BORDER OF OUR LOWER WOODS. CATBIRDS GORGE ON THE SHINY RED FRUITS.

INSECT HATCHES CONTINUE AT THE POND, AS DO THE HUNTING FORAYS OF TREE SWALLOWS, GOBBLING THEM UP OVERHEAD.
