Well, they are not exactly hopping around, although I did see a starling that looked a bit more speckled than an adult would, so it is possible that those guys have already started having smaller ones.
The ducks are all pairing on the pond. The geese have taken partners and are honking their way up and down the lane. The red-winged blackbirds are singing their mating call as they precariously perch on the reedy cattails in the middle of the pond. There was a pair of hawks sitting in the top of the cottonwood the other day. I saw a pair of bald eagles flying together, and the pair of robins have been hopping around on the aspen limbs.
Between flying, squawking, honking, cheeping and quacking, everyone is getting ready to say hello to baby birds and ducks. Just saying “I Love You” quack.
Here are some baby birds that never go out of style.
