Young Robin Finds its Wings

Safe for Now

On the weekend a nearby brood of fledgling robins were eager to leave their nest, and thanks to expert parental coaching and encouragement they hopped about and discovered a use for their wings. One youngster found a safe perch in our front yard apricot tree. (I took the first photo on Saturday; my wife took the other two Sunday AM).

"I made it through the night all by myself!"

New Brewer's blackbirds, chickadees, cardinals, finches and sparrows have also fledged and learned to fly recently in and around our backyard. I feel 2015 has been the busiest year - for birds - on record in Old South.

I guess I'd better build more bird feeders!
