Empty Nesters

The babies have spread their wings and flown...at least a short distance:)
Baby robins:

Baby wren:
And a bird of a different feather.  I won this at MagicLoveCrow, my very own Vampire Crow.
Thanks, Stacy. Love it!

  6. I do enjoy birds. I had a robin's nest on my deck which had a couple of eggs, but one day when I came home they were on the ground. I am not sure what happened. I was so sad :(

    1. I empathize, True. It's stressful when they don't make it.

  9. These birdies are just so cute and so happy to see these pictures of them. I am thinking he looks more like a Superman Crow with a slightly evil edge or maybe badass is better:)

  10. Birds are so cute when they're young and still just a little fuzzy.

  11. We were just saying that we never see the baby robins around here. Always just full sized robins. Maybe we're just not looking closely enough!

  17. I've always wondered when parent birds know that exact time to give babies a push.
