ABC Wednesday - R is for Robins

(Scroll down to the next post for the GIVEAWAY - 3 Prizes!!!!)

This week at ABC Wednesday, we "R" all focusing on R - and R is for Robins!

Tonight I watched the second baby actually leave the nest! After watching the family of robins, from nesting to eggs to babies, it was a bit of shock to see the baby take wing and actually clumsily fly off. It just seemed like yesterday they were hatching!

Three eggs were laid, but only 2 hatched.

Over the past week, I got a few glimpses of the babies, especially when the parents arrived with worms! Then it was all beak!

Here are a few shots from the past week!

Be sure to visit the other great participants here.

What a wonderful glimpse into such a magical moment. They will really be fun to watch while they are learning to fly.

It's so interesting to follow the progress from egg to fledgling - you'll miss your little lodgers :-)

How marvelous! I've been seeing robin egg shells all over the place and lots of cheeping ... so nice to see your little guys!

Continuing on my apparent need to make a musical reference, rockin' robins! we had some last year, but the pics weren't nearly as good.
