(Mountain Bluebird and Mountain Chickadee fledglings above)
The baby birds are out and about if you haven't noticed. So many fledglings everywhere! Makes me happy. The birds are getting pretty quiet in general since it's August but the fledgling everythings are quite chatty. Here's a couple little guys I've seen lately -only a very small handful of 'em. I was about to make a list but that would just be silly cause it would be way too long. So I'll just say the Chukar and the Mountain Quail babies recently were ridiculously cute!

Also, Zac is flying to Mississippi today and so I'm bummed about that cause I won't see him for about 6 or so weeks. Nooo! Another 3 weeks of field work and then I'll be taking a leisurely amount of time to drive back (via Montana, Wyoming, Utah, etc) to the deep South. Anyway, Zac's taking the computer so I won't be able to do the blog thing as often, so I apologize if I'm much less attentive to my blog friends. I'll make up for it this fall! I've got quite a few recent photos on the thumbdrive and can use the work computer sometimes, so I have that to hold me over for a little while. But it's likely I'm going to have a hoard of new photos by the time I get to MS. So there you have it! Camera Critters Scenic Sunday SOOC (Green-tailed Towhee fledgling below)
