...sometimes even a single feather is enough to fly. (Robert Maclean)


baby robins about to fledge!

There are actually three young robins in the nest, but only two are visible here...  They're so big that the Mama can't even lie down anymore... she just perches on the side.  (Apologies for the poor photo angle, unfortunately the mother built her nest right into our lattice...)  Out of numerous nests of young robins this year, this late-season brood is the only one that might actually make it since we predator-proofed the area from our hound-lab mix, Bella.  Bella the Bad baby-bird killer!
