Damp days, damp birds

It sure has been miserable for a few days now, with the sun as a rare visitor. The garden has been full of little birds-this year’s babies, visiting with their parents. A family of blue tits, about 7 youngsters-have been here for the last 3 days, feeding on the sunflower feeder. The are just getting the hang of using it for themselves, rather than begging from their parents.

A male blackbird has been energetically feeding a single youngster. It’s been difficult to get a close up picture of the young one, but dad obligingly sat of the roof of the bird table while I was working here yesterday afternoon.
