Birds are singing early and then quieting down by late morning,  but there 
is a lot of activity now with a lot of newly fledged juveniles and  many 
more still in the nests. The Wood Thrush nest I've been watching now has at  
least 3 nestlings and both mom and pop are busy taking turns gathering food.  
Easy to tell dad, he never sits on the nest or even stands on the edge 
except to  actually feed the chicks. otherwise he stands on a branch next to or 
above the  nest. That means the nestlings are not covered when mom is gone. 
Usually 5  minutes or more. Chicks' eyes aren't open yet.
