Finding new birds is always fun. But it can be amazing to find fledgling birds. They are literally new birds! They are also the new hope for birds across the world. Many birds are struggling and populations for most birds are declining. Seeing new birds and young birds presents exciting and new opportunities for species as well as many dangers. New birds are especially susceptible to dangers like disease and predation. As I snapped the picture below of the tufted titmice, blue jays were stalking overhead and were waiting for their opportunity to pounce.
