🐦 MAMA BIRD FEEDING & GUARDING HER NEST 🪺

I can't believe I was able to be still enough to capture these pics of a mama bird taking food to and guarding her nest in one of our birdhouses.  I'm farther away than what the pictures look, but I zoomed in as much as I could with my phone.  I'm not certain what kind of bird this is, but she's really pretty!

You can see something in her mouth in this one

Maybe the Merlin app would tell you.

Thanks for letting me know about this app.  My iPhone has a built in app that almost always can tell the species.  However, for some reason, it couldn't for this one.😔

Thank you 😃❤️

She sure does provide the best subjects!  All of my best and favorite pictures are of the natural beauty I've found right outside around me.❤️

Is that app for just birds or various species?

I'm hoping one of our forum friends who knows birds can help me out with this one.  I can't get the Merlin app to download.😔

Thank you .... I recently got a big bird book at the library because we're having trouble identifying a couple new "regulars" that visit.   Will get the Merlin app.   Woman Happy

Maybe it's a Tree Swallow? 

They live in Southern US and some Mid-Atlantic states according to my bird book.  I've never seen one near my house in PA but the picture in my book looks like your pic. 


They like nesting boxes.
