Almost Fledglings

North American Robin hatchlings on May 22, 2011.

The nest gets more crowded every day. If the young robins are nine to ten days old, they should begin to fledge by Thursday. Mother robin is very patient with my daily picture-taking. I wondered if she would dive-bomb me but she hasn't. She is also a meticulous housekeeper. No signs or smells of droppings in the nest.

Everyone is hungry! Mother robin is nearby. I can hear her "Tut tut"
warning call from the nearby cherry tree.


  1. I am loving your daily chronicles of the robins. Plus you are giving me facts and vocabulary that I did not know about robins. Thanks.

  2. I am having fun with it too. It makes me wish I had a better camera.


Thanks for reading my post. Please leave a comment.
