Re: The garden nursery

A few days on and the fledglings no longer are being fed by their parents - they should have learnt what food there is to eat and where to find it.

This little fledgling was found in the bushes, snoozing. It remained asleep as I approached.

I had to whistle to gain its attention.

It looks pretty fed up. No parents around. At least he is near the bird feeding station and seeing other birds feeding here might encourage him to start to feed itself. I hope so. Most other fledgling sparrows are now feeding themselves and keeping with the flock.

Best wishes

Best Regards
