It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year

As I mentioned in my previous post, my backyard is swarming with young Woodpeckers, but they’re not the only juvies showing up at this joint.

This young Robin has recently started venturing out on his own.

His curious expressions are a good match for his inquisitive behavior. Β It is fun to watch him discover the world.

When he grows up, his speckles will disappear and he will look like this fine fellow below.

And remember Rowdy, the first baby of the season?
Well, he is coming all by himself now, but his “I, me, mine” attitude hasn’t changed a bit!

Baby bird season really is the most wonderful time of the year!

  1. I have a robin nest in the crabapple tree near my back door. A few weeks ago, baby birds with little beaks open were looking over the edge. How long is it from the time the are hatchlings until they leave the nest? I’ve not seen them lately.

      1. Okay, good. I found one that had fallen from the nest and was deceased. I was worried that the others had a similar ending. Maybe they have just flown the coop, so to speak.
