I may have already mentioned that Mrs. Robin used her same old nest from last year that was in my climbing hydrangea on the garage wall. Even though we were out on the courtyard a lot she finally got used to us and knew we meant her no harm. She and the mister spent the day flying in and out of the nest with food for those babies
Well, today Don decided to take a peek into the nest to see how the babies were progressing. When he pulled back the leaves out flew a baby bird...well, not such a baby as he had feathers and looked like he was ready to leave the nest. He flew over to the lion fountain and Don carefully picked him up and reached to place him gently back in the nest...and....whoops...two more flew out. Mommy and daddy were having a fit flying around and chirping. Since they looked big enough to be on the ground we went into the house to let the parents deal with the situation. I watched while mommy led them up under the trees to safety.
