New kids in town

Lots of juvenile birds everywhere. Today Belle Isle was inundated with newly fledged Black-capped Chickadees. To the horror of the patrons the little ones were on the ground, in the parking lot, landing on cars...etc. I spent most of the morning getting them off the ground and placing back in trees. While fledged, the birds could barely fly. Parents will continue to feed them for weeks to come.
