Baby Bird Photos and Information

A young starling sitting in a lawn.I grew up with animals and always had a great love for birds. My parents moved to Ontario and I had to sell all my birds :(

While we were there, I got a number of birds back again. 6 months later, my parents decided they were moving back to Nova Scotia, and I had to get rid of all my birds again! Well, I ran to the barn and cried and cried.


Unbeknown to me, my mother was outside listening to me. So after a talk with my dad and a lot of no's, they finally decided to allow me to keep the litter of chicks that was due to hatch on the day we were to leave. 1 gosling, 1 duckling and 5 chicks hatched. I got a tiny cardboard box and put them all in it. I had to carry the box in my hand the entire trip back. Being 9 people in a half ton truck, loaded to the gills with stuff, we took turns shifting from the cab to the back of the pickup. We crawled in over the clothes and stuff, trying to catch 40 winks. Even asleep, my dad remarked how tightly I held onto the small cardboard box.

Anyways, I kept those babies next to my bed every night with my hand hung over the side into the box with my babies, I was their mummy and they wrapped around my hand all night long. I took them outside days and they followed me everywhere. Well the chicks grew up and well became chicks.

They were never scared of me, used me as a perch often enough. But what I remember the most was my goose, I called him Weep Weep, and boy, did he know his name! He went everywhere with me, sat on my lap, on the floor beside me, and went out side to play.

I remember one time I took on the beeline to the beach. Poor thing stretched those legs best he could trying to keep up with me, just a hollering all the way, When he'd catch up, he'd stretch his neck out and talk in his loving happy way, wrap his neck around mine and just go on and on. If I went in the water, he was always right there. So many people used to just get flabbergasted over it. It was the darnedest thing!

A problem arose once he became about 2 years old. I was crouched on the ground and he climbed on my back. Being a kid, I didn't realize what was going on till he grabbed my hair. My mum and Dad were in the window and saw this. They said the gander was trying to mate with me. Well geeze!

Anyways, I decided he needed a mate, yes a real mate. It was the hardest thing I ever did. My parents wouldn't allow me to get another goose, so I found him a good home on a island with lots of other geese. Never ever forgot my gander. Geese are just too smart and very loyal.

These day old little ones are in their nest that is on our back porch light to the right of our door. That poor mama bird! We come and go out of that door so much. She flies off squawking at us each time!

We have a propane gas tank and I needed to check and see how much gas we had left in the tank. When I lifted the lid, I found a nest of newly hatched baby birds.


They are practically naked and haven't opened their eyes. They thought I was their mama. I'm hoping these four little ones grow up to be blue birds.

I have a wreath that hangs on my front porch, one day I noticed there was a birds nest built in it. One by one, I had an egg laid in the nest until there were 5 eggs. 10 days later the eggs started to hatch until all 5 were born. And that's where it is right now. It is rather crowded in there and have some very hungry baby birds and making quite a mess!

Every year, we have a new family of baby robins nested atop our front door, this year was a new surprise! We are not sure what type these sweet little baby birds are, anyone? We were thinking English Sparrows?

Mama bird built a nest in my utility room. One day, I heard chirping and found these little ones. They were hungry and anxiously awaiting mama bird to come back with food.


Soon afterward they found their wings and took off.

I happened to be in the right place at the right time to watch several baby birds leave their nest and bravely take flight. This little bird sought safety near my front door. I watched it for a long time but did not disturb it.

These babies were born in one of our bushes in the front yard. We just happen to check on them while they were hatching, so I ran and got my camera. It was fascinating to watch.
