What a cool experience to watch “up close” the life of a family of birds. If we were actively homeschooling right now this would have made for a great lesson series to notebook or lapbook.  I remember when they were just eggs 😉  and then they hatched and were just ugly 😉 well, a little bit cute I guess…and now look at them!


baby robins with feathers

The picture above was taken a few days ago…maybe May 23 or a little before. See how feathery they are?

my last picture of the three together

I took this picture yesterday, May 26th,  from outside *sniff*.

Today I attempted to get a picture from inside the house, at the window and it appeared there were only two in there…and I apparently scared one when I did because  he flew out of the nest right then.  I watched one of the adults lead him through the wire fence and into another yard.

This is the last baby (above).  See him cowered down in the nest? I opened the window to get a really good picture and he freaked out and left the nest too.

When I went outside to get the picture above of baby in the grass one or both adults was throwing a hissy. I do think Mrs.Robin didn’t take them too far. There has still been a fair amount of squawking in the backyard and a couple robins flying around. I have an idea of where they are but I haven’t gone out to see. It appears the adult(s) are still feeding the babies too.

Be careful baby robins. Watch out for the neighborhood dogs and cats little guys…*sniff, sniff, *.
