FLEDGLING ROBINS ENJOYING MY BACKYARD

Image

June 8, 2014

It’s  was a family scene  outside out my kitchen window  – this was  Fledgling Robin # 1.  Just sitting there chirping  and looking around.

Image

At times, Fledgling  # 1 seemed a bit frustrated….

Image

Then Dad arrived with a snack and it became clear to me what was happening.  Then I noticed…….

Image

Sitting on my back fence was Fledgling  Robin # 2.

Image

Dad was busy feeding  both Fledglings !   Then I spotted…..

Image

Fledgling  Robin # 3 is sitting  in the next door neighbor’s back fence.  Poor Dad –  I’m getting tired just watching him hunt for worms and  fly from one chirping Fledgling  to the next, all the while chasing away  other stray birds  he thinks might be a threat to his fledglings.  .

Back to Fledgling  # 1.

Image

At a moment,   I thought I’d get to see Fledgling  # 1 take flight…

Image

But then Fledgling  # 1 decided to stay.  

How long did they stay there?   Not sure, but a better part of the morning I’m guessing.   I finally had to put down my camera and get some work done.  When I finally looked back outside the  whole family was gone.

Although since then,  I have been noticing “teen-age”  Robins with the fledgling spotted breast poking around my back lawn …

Image

 I’d like to think these are the same Robins , growing  up healthy on my backyard bugs and worms.
