A Backwards Blog

There are white berries on white dogwood trees along the back of our yard. This answered my question from the other night.

Conditions sometimes dictate the quality of my pictures. This was one of those times. Needless to say, I took the following pictures through a dirty window and the screen.

A few nights ago, I walked into the bedroom and saw a young bird perched on the remains of an overgrown evergreen shrub that my husband cut way back. It looked like a young robin to me.

It looked like a robin to me, until a brown thrasher flew in and fed it! It happened to fast to get a picture. Then I was confused. I’d never seen a young brown thrasher. I just kept snapping pictures.

The brown thrasher returned with “dinner” that wasn’t intended for the robin this time.

The young napped.

Just what it was waiting for.

Looked like it wanted more.

It preened.

This time I could see what was being fed … only I didn’t know what it was. It wasn’t until I had the pictures in the computer that I could tell. I didn’t know when the berries were ripe on the white dogwoods.

I’m over here!

After watering the few plants that I water, I peeked around the corner of the house and the robin was still there. It was gone when I went back in the house.

  2. Wonderful series, and great photos, so cute! I haven’t seen any baby birds around us for the last couple months, and just a few days ago I saw and took a few photos of two baby robins and mom as I was getting out of my car. It was nice to see some babies again after seeing so many in the spring/early summer and then none until now. Thanks for sharing yours! 🙂
