Empty nest syndrome


The Oak Titmice fledged from my yard a week and a half ago when I was gone for the weekend. The adults continue to come to my seed tray. I noticed 3 times today that they would take the seed, fly over to the box and peer into the hole before landing in a tree. (I feel bad I cleaned the box out today) Maybe it's hormones still. The same hormones that enabled them to barrel onto the tray and drive the usually dominant House finches off which they're still doing.
