There are actually three baby ROBINS in this nest.
My recent visit to our local Home Depot, revealed more than just home and garden supplies. In the outside courtyard, there were several very large pine trees for sale. I looked at them and wondered how anyone could ever get them home. As I was walked through the area I spied a Robin tangled in a small piece of plastic wrap near the top of one of the trees. I watched as she struggled to set her self free, falling from branch to branch down the tree. After a couple of minutes, she was able to fly to the top of the building and I breathed a sigh of relief. She sat there for the longest time looking back down at the tree. Wondering what caught her attention, I looked too! And there hidden in the branches was a nest of baby robins. The nest was made of twigs and small branches and... pieces of plastic wrap. I stood for quite awhile as Mamma Robin made several trips to feed her growing brood. It was a slow day at the Depot and no one else was around to view the scene. I smiled at the thought of purchasing the tree and wondered if the baby birds came with it. Then I realized I don't really need another tree, and I actually have plenty of baby robins in my gardens as well. So I left the Bonus Buy for someone else to discover. I did show the sales clerk my find.
I wonder if they raised the price after I left?
Proof that you should always have a camera with you wherever you go. I didn't, so the pics are from my own garden. The birds look much the same... just imaging plastic wrap in the nest.
