Sparrow Siblings

Once again, my Magnolia tree in my front yard became host to a lovely pair of fledgling sparrow siblings (and their doting mother). Their cute little faces warmed my heart…instantly. A stressful day gave way to a moment of near silence (if not for the chirps of the hungry chicks). I followed them from the treetop to my backyard fence railing, where their mother fed them with seed from my feeders.

They may not be Pileated Woodpeckers, beautiful Yellowthroats, or Western Tanagers, but they’re gorgeous, just the same (…atleast while they’re little):
