Backyard Springtime Nature in New Jersey.

Birds of the Day — Brown-headed Cowbird, Northern Cardinal, Blue Jay, and Eastern Phoebe. The Eastern Phoebes are feeding the two remaining young chicks in the nest. One of the chicks is larger and dominating the nest. I see the parents trying to tempt the larger chick to leave the nest.
