Juvenile birds in the garden

It’s always wonderful at this time of the year to see the next generation of birds appearing in the garden at home.

Leading the way in 2023 are a pair of young robins.

While doing some work on the patio and tidying up around the pots, one of the youngsters was really curious and came within inches of me, obviously interested in what food I was exposing for it.

I went back inside and got some maggots out of the fridge, which it enthusiastically took.

I captured some footage of the bird and that’s in the video.
