In the yard today I got a look at a juvie Chipping Sparrow. Also a juvie American Redstart. Soon after, at Beech Hill, I got to watch a few juvie Barn Swallows swoop and veer up around the spruce grove, nabbing flies. And nearby I spied a juvie Eastern Phoebe begging for food from its solicitous parent.

Then back down the slope, I watched an adult Chestnut-sided Warbler feed its little light-green kiddo.
