Baby Birds!

There has been a lot of breeding activity in my neighborhood lately. I can see the location of a catbird nest from my bedroom window. (I cannot see the nest itself, just the bush where the nest is located, and the constant activity of the the male and female flying in and out of the bush.) There are also a lot of fledglings begging for food. The ones I have noticed most are common grackles, but other common species are represented, too. Here are a few photos of them, courtesy of the Birdcam.
