Roadrunner Baby Picture

baby roadrunners - 5-13-13

Diana was off hunting this morning, so I sneaked out with my camera to see if the babies were visible . . . and they were! What a thrill!!

Do you know what a baby roadrunner is called? I didn’t, so off to Wikipedia. It is a “fledge”.

    That’s what baby birds are called until they have their big kid feathers.

      We are having a lot of fun with these guys. With the (Wile E.) coyotes that we hear around here at night, we have our own little Looney Tunes factory! Meep! Meep! Thanks for joining us!

    Adorable! You nailed the focus. Tricky with all those branches in the way.

      They don’t seem to be afraid of me. I’ve been talking to them since they were eggs, so maybe they are accustomed to the sound of my voice.

      Hey, Rita – We were just looking into your yard yesterday afternoon and wishing you were still here! We miss you! :-( How are you doing? Send me an email sometime. ;->

    Great picture! I’ve heard the term “fledgling” used to describe baby birds. And you were correct – “fledge” is an intransitive verb, according to Mirriam-Webster.
