six word saturday – happy robin news



After an absence of about two weeks, I spotted the baby robin this morning.  Its red breast is beginning to develop now so it looks a bit more robin-like rather than just a small brown speckled bird.  So, in the last week I have seen one adult, and one juvenile – but where is the other one?  Hopefully it didn’t provide the sparrowhawk’s meal.

  6. I once nursed a mourning dove, a very young one – still had wing feathers wrapped up. Poor bird got blown out of the nest (into the road) during a storm. Once I released it, it came back every year. Pretty cool to watch.
    Hope the other one returns.
