Baby Robins

I work with adults with disabilities, and one of our homes is on a rural 10 acre lot,previously owned by a gardener and a birdwatcher. We have a very large porch, and it has become a favourite nesting place for a mama robin. She’s on her second nest this spring. I got these photos about 2 days before the first set of hatchlings flew away. It was fun to watch them develop. This mama was pretty tolerant of our comings and goings- and even busted the myth that bird moms don’t come back if you touch their babies- we had to pick up a couple of them when they fell out of the nest, and she came back every time. I love their little feather tufts, and their little bulgy eyes!
I also like the ones where the biggest baby is getting bold enough to flap his wings.
