    Raining with thunder storms where the robins are, but their nest is in a nice dry place. Unfortunately mom can't fit in the crowded nest and can only stand on the side!

    Back by popular demand! Some of the birds may have flown the coop but others can still be seen.

    Thanks Agate. Just checked the Great Horned Owl nest to see her feeding a new little one right now! Link is above your post!

    oh no, that was a highlight. Nest is empty now.

    Lots of tweeting from the Great Horned Owl nest, but couldn't see any activity this morning.

    Saw a baby eagle perched on the edge of the nest, all alone, apparently trying to muster up the nerve to start flying. He finally took off but might be returning. Not sure where the rest of the family is:

    We got a few pics of the newest batch of itty bitty quail chicks today. We know they are at least a couple of days old, because this is the 2nd time we've caught a glimps of them this week. You can barely see the little guys in the first two pics, they blend in with the rocky soil so well! They are right in the middle of the picture!
    In the third and fourth pics you can see them better, all 7 plus momma quail, as they head out around our veggie garden.

    Thanks for pointing the way. I'd have missed them otherwise! I looked through the photos and never did see all 7 baby quail. Then I went back to your post and returned to the last photo and took a closer look. I had seen one quail the first time, but I found out that was the mom. I completely missed the 7 little ones.

    Blending in is good!

    Agate, these little guys are hard to see, until they run! In the first photo, mamma quail and a blue jay are off to the right. The little ones are in a cluster (I count 5) and are closer to that other bird, pecking around the weeds. Mom appears to be looking right at them. By the way, those weeds are something that came up from seed that was kicked out of the bird feeder! Were growing bird feed!
    In the second pic, I can only see 2 of the little chicks close to mom.

    It's almost like one of those Where's Waldo pictures!
