Postscript. This photo was taken on Tuesday. While walking around the house to make sure that nothing needed immediate attention we noticed this nest of baby robins in the crook of our down-spout. With a brief wait in hiding I was able to capture the mama robin feeding her young. Today, Saturday, we discovered that the birds are gone. Don't know when they left or if they left of their own choice. From the photo I would think they were too young to flee the nest but they are gone. I do hope that nothing bad has happened to them. But, I feel lucky to have had a brief moment to watch them.
Update. Last night I went out after dark to water our tomato plants and discovered on of the fledglings roosting on the top of a support cage. So at least one is still around. I hope the others have not gone far as well.
Oohhh..I hope that the young robins are okay and well. Thanks for sharing this photo with us :)Happy WW!
What a delightful photo! I like it! Hope they are all doing well - wherever.http://blondesherry.blogspot.com/2009/08/ww-good-catch.html
What a cute picture! :)
They do grow up fast, so perhaps they left the nest before you realized they had grown. They are so cute.
