Mom I’m Hungry

I have been watching a mother and father robin flying back and forth throughout the day when the babies were still in the nest.  They decided to build a nest on the second floor on one of the resident’s air conditioners.

For the last few days I watched the parents with their two speckled young ones out in the back yard. I can watch them from the window.

 Today took the cake.  Two young robins were crying to their mother, “Feed me, feed me.”  She really was trying to teach them to listen to the ground and to peck for worms.  I saw her weaken and place a delicacy in the youngster’s mouth.  How are these growing babies ever going to learn to stand on their own two feet?

It was a delightful experience in a day in the life.

I hear the robins saying goodnight now at 9:30 p.m.

The young robins are much older than these babies in this photo taken by Cindy Dyer, Dyer Design.
