All good things must come to an end.
excitement is over and I am left with an empty nest and...what else
but...bird droppings (I shall spare you a photo of that).
This has been such a fun experience witnessing this so close up. I am going to miss checking in on them.
A side note: I read on the internet that Robin's feed their babies around 100 times a day. Who knew...and...it makes sense based on what I saw. No wonder the babies grow so darn fast.
Perspective of his venture out of the nest.
To think he went from this...
...to this in around two weeks...pretty wild.
I guess it finally got too crowded for this little guy.
No more bending over to feed their crew.
A parent on the bamboo on my front porch only feet away from the nest. I swear s/he is looking right at me chirping away like crazy. Again, when this happens, off the chair I go so they can get back to feeding their little ones.
Look how big they have grown in a little over a week...so amazing to witness first hand. Check out the coloring and pattern on their little chests...well on their way to the robin red.
Don't they look like they are ready to bust out of the nest?
This guy is ready to go.
Is this a photo op or what? Look how they are all positioned just so.
They know food is so very close.
Okay...I just thought this photo was cool as it captured mom or dad as they were flying from the nest.
