Two baby robins just waiting for someone to take them for a wagon ride! They sure poop a lot - Tim said he put the wagon there last night, so they must have flown the coop today sometime. That would explain all the noise I heard this morning!
So I took a picture of the girls with the babies, so they can show them off at school tomorrow:
Then I told them to stay away so the mother could feed them. Natalie went to play on the slide, but oops.... look what was behind the playset!
Baby robin #3! He hopped away, which is when I figured out that Babies # 1 & 2 were probably not so much waiting for a ride as STUCK!!! in the wagon. I opened the door and they very shortly hopped out, encouraged by Mom who was waiting in the hedge with a juicy worm!
We then checked on the nest in the front yard (in the red maple on the boulevard) where there had been eggs last Saturday. Mom flew away as we approached, so I stuck my camera up to try and get a picture in the nest (it's too high to see into). Guess what we found?
Looks like they have just hatched! One more egg to go - unless that's the one the kids took out of the nest on Saturday...poor thing!
