i apologize for the tardiness of this post. when last we visited the robin babies it was may 28th for pete's sake!
even though i've been lax in posting, i was right on top of taking daily pictures. so let's go back to sunday may 29th:
monday the 30th:
tuesday the 31st (things are starting to get a little bit crowded in the old nest):
on wednesday june 1st lil and i were driving home from running an errand and as we turned into the driveway i spied a newly fledged robin sitting on a brush pile. (i was kicking myself for not having a camera with me.)
when we came and checked the nest only two little guys were left! in retrospect it's obvious that two of the babes were more mature than the others, especially in the last couple of pictures.
so here's wednesday june 1st's picture, the two little guys:
thursday june 2nd:
when i saw them on friday the 3rd i knew it was only a matter of time before they fledged (aren't they so cute with their speckled breasts?!?):
and sure enough by saturday morning the nest was empty.
i hope the parents decide to come back again next spring. i love having baby birds!
