Baby birds a cause for joy all summer
Spring and summer are the seasons when birds across the United States settle down to breed. During this time of year you'll hear many of them singing in an attempt to attract mates and to mark and defend their territories. This is the traditional nest-building and mating time. In southern Illinois, we have more than 100 birds that nest and raise their young. In late spring and early summer the females lay eggs. The clutch size varies by bird species, and ranges from two to fifteen eggs. Songbirds incubate their eggs from 10 to 16 days -- larger birds, like geese, may sit on the eggs for a month before they hatch. When baby birds peck their way out of the eggs their eyes are closed and they're featherless -- they are called hatchlings. After a few days they are able to see, become downy, and grow quickly in size -- now they're referred to as nestlings. The parents feed them from sunup to sundown, and in 10 to 15 days they will have grown in their feathers. At this point they are considered fledglings, following their parents everywhere and begging for food, even as they hone their flying skills and learn to hunt for seeds and insects on their own. Once fully feathered and able to fend for themselves, the young are known as juveniles. Juvenile birds are the same size as their parents, but their feathering may make them appear to be separate species -- making their identification by birdwatchers a challenge.
