Red-eyed Vireo and nestlings

Red-eyed Vireo and nestlings

The baby Vireos are getting big, so fast! It’s incredible that the incubation of these young Vireos is only 11-15 days, and then in another 10-12 days they are ready to leave the nest.

I think there may be just 2 nestlings in the nest. He sure can stretch his neck up to receive the food.

These young birds will probably be out of the nest by this weekend.

The red eye on these birds doesn’t always show, you have to be in just the right light.
