Family Of Flycatchers

Its that time of year again, young birds are out and about and demanding food! At Bombay Hook National Wildlife Refuge I found two family of Eastern Wood Pewee. Eastern Wood Pewee are a type of Flycatcher. They were so cute sitting on a stick together!

Family Of Flycatchers

Whenever mother bird would spot an insect flying she would take off and grab it in mid air! She would then fly back to the family branch and the little ones would open their mouths wide. The little wars began as each bird tried to out beg the other.


It is amazing that despite all these bird families at Bombay Hook NWR there are still so many biting flies and mosquitoes buzzing around.
