A couple weeks ago I began noticing a new visitor to the peanut feeder. Still in some of his baby feathers.
The red crown patch started to fill in about a week later. This is Lord and Lady Downy’s son, I’m sure.
Now he’s a regular but he often has competition with all the juvenile House Sparrows.
Every day he looks more and more like the Earl of Redcap, which is what I’ve named him.
