Daddy Birds deserve a break for Father's Day

Too bad female birds often get all the credit for nesting and caring for the young. Some Daddy Birds share equally in the tasks.  Various species that work hard for the family include house finches, bluebirds, woodpeckers, geese and brown pelicans.  Read more about Daddy Birds and see a slideshow in The Orange County Register.

  1. Jennifer, another informative and interesting article. Loved the story and layout with the photographs in the OC Register this past Saturday. Thank you for keeping us informed while making it easy and enjoyable to read. Of course now that I have multiple bird feeders I may need to take on a part time job! Looking forward to your future articles.
