NESTING BIRDS AT KATES CABIN


Hi Everybody!!
Today we are looking at several birds that are now nesting on the grounds of Kates Cabin Bird Sanctuary in Texas. The first bird is "Lucy", a black vulture. Her nest is on the ground under the 'buzzard tree'. I have not seen the chicks yet, but I see her come and go. Next is a house wren, who selected a birdhouse on my front porch! This small songbird has a huge song and enjoys being around humans. The final surprise in the photo lineup is a hummingbird male Ruby-throated. He showed up after Valentine's Day when the winter hummer left. He has a female and one baby I have seen. Birds will nest in your yard if you provide habitat, food, water and safety. Enjoy!
