They Grow Up So Fast...

Mama robin built her nest in the bush beside our kitchen door. For four weeks we watched them grow...







And now they are ready to go.



And we're dealing with an empty nest (literally).



Groovy misses her feathery babies!

Wow, you certainly did get great shots of them growing up! I think it's so fascinating how fast they grow and leave the nest...glad our own kids don't leave so fast! lol We have two baby Blue Jays that have just left the nest and the parents are swooping down at anyone or anything that even gets too near! xoxo

I LOVE it when robins- - - or any bird for that matter, nest where we can watch them.

You did a MASTERFUL job of documenting their development for us!!! Thanks

Maybe one day they'll return to lay their children.
