The Robin's Nest

I've been doing a quick sketch of the robin hatchlings every morning. I try to be quick because the mother seems agitated whenever she sees me on the ladder, but amazingly both she and the hatchlings seem to be getting used to me.

Three years ago we raised a baby robin that fell out of a nest, and during those two weeks of feeding I developed a great appreciation for the work of robin parents. It was an amazing feeling to see the little guy fly off on his own for the first time.

Heh you too. I took a few pics of baby robins which hatched early in the spring around May. You can see them on my blog. Sadly only one baby survived due to accidents on the road.
