Robin Watch 2012: And Then There Were Three

They grow up so fast. Just the other day you could barely see their heads over the nest, now they look like they are elbowing each other for more room (do they have elbows?).

    Such an amazing close-up! Love the detail on their feathers and the back-lit, muted green of the leaves.

    So glad to see them looking so bright-eyed and healthy! I know we’ve got robins nesting around the house, but I’ve never spotted the nests — I only see dazed-looking fledglings hopping around in the lawn, trying to figure out what they can eat and do with themselves. I love that ugly-cuteness of baby birds.

      Last year’s crop didn’t make it…something got to the nest at the last minute just a few days before they fledged. This robin pair has built their nest in the most exposed tree on the most exposed branch. It’s a miracle they have been able to keep them from predators.
