Robin’s Nest #4

Four robin chicks in the nest

As well as getting more fluff, you can see that their little bodies have grown a lot in four days.

They sure are ugly!

Mamma robin sits in the nest for feeding.

Peeking through the cedars I can see Mamma robin settling in to feed the chicks.

It’s a lot of work keeping up with the little guys.   A lot of mouths to feed.

It’s hard to believe that the chicks will actually grow up to look like robins.

Four nestlings start to look a bit more like birds

It is possible to see that feathers are beginning to form where the fluff is darkening up.

It looks like their eyelids are developing too.   They grow up so fast!
