Rockin’ Robin…

1 Comment

Oh my goodness, the sad part is, I actually know the words to that song.

But this is about Robins – and there were two of them today that were definitely not rocking in the tree tops all night long.

Either they became curious about the world, or mom said it was time to get a haircut and get a real job. They landed on the patio around 8am (from the nest in an old maple) and continued to hop around the yard all day. Not to worry, mom did spend the day providing plenty of delicious worms and bugs.

I’ve done the whole robin facts blog before (June 9, 2013), but just wanted to share these pictures from today.

Check out my website With a recent addition of a greenhouse, my newest passion is growing-your-own. And what fun that is. Yes, there's the odd failure, but there's nothing quite as satisfying as walking through the veggie patch collecting dinner.

One thought on “Rockin’ Robin…

  1. I volunteer at Salthaven, where we feed and raise orphan robins, etc. and I love the hair do on the baby robins. They all look like little crump old men. They are so darn cute!

    Thanks so much for sharing these great pictures.
