[Tweeters] A rather juvenile day in Whatcom County ... White-crowned, Barn Swallow, Cedar Waxwing and my favorite

Three different fledglings species and a nest with at least four funny looking Marsh Wrens sticking their bright yellow beaks open hoping to get the next bug brought by the parents. Wondering if the bright color of the bills/mouths helps the parents get the food to them in dim lights.

I hope you find the photos interesting. I guess I have not got out birding much this time of the year before and finding the juveniles and nests fascinating.

Another bird of the day on Ptarmagin Ridge was a female Horned Lark. - photo on eBird.

You might need to go forward and backward to see the new shots.
Enjoy.
