This is the mother bird of the baby birds pictured below, I think. It could be the father bird. They built a nest of moss and fine twigs in the rafters of our hay shed near the atrium garden and we’ve been watching them.
The baby birds are growing amazingly fast. Between when I took this photo and now, just a matter of days, the young birds have already flown the nest. I was surprised at how quickly they matured and were ready to go.
Will has more about the birds on his blog.
I’m not a ‘birder’ and don’t know many species so I don’t know what kind they are, perhaps you do and can leave the name in comments…
