A few years ago (June '09) I posted photos of the progress of some baby birds we had at our house (details are here and here). Robins make nests everywhere around my house and we just had a new batch of birds take flying lessons from their momma last week. She built her nest in the eves of our porch and when our dogs went to investigate the babies hopping and "flying" in the driveway, momma bird chased one dog all the way to the backyard! (No birds were harmed but my dog was scared and we were entertained.) I thought I would put up old photos again since it's quite timely.
|Week 1 - Robin builds nest in wreath on my porch (I still have the wreath with the empty nest!)|
|Week 2 - beautiful blue eggs|
|Week 4 - ugly baby birds|
|Week 5 - cute baby birds|
|Week 6 - hungry baby birds|
|Week 6 + 2 days - crowded baby birds|
|Week 6 + 5 days - learning to fly baby birds, and they never came back|
