Baby Robins Wave Goodbye

I went out to check on the Baby Robins first thing this morning. Well, ALMOST first thing.

One little baby was out in the middle of the yard, a sitting duck. The other was nowhere to be seen.  The little one was headed toward the south side of the yard to the fence…and the shed where the snake lives. 😦

The Mama and Papa Robin have been around all day, though, so maybe at least one of the little buggers made it. For today.  Apparently most robins die their first year. And? It takes them 10 – 13 days after they jump the next before they can actually fly and be self-sufficient. That’s a lot of days to live on the ground when there are cats and snakes around.

I hope they make it.

    Poor little things are soooo vulnerable. We can only account for one remaining out of our backyard brood.
