Robin Hatchlings ~ 8 Days Old ~ Last Photo

Robin Babies 8 Days Old

I took this  pic Friday afternoon
~ 5/24/2013 ~


Saturday Morning I took pictures of them at 9 days old but they all turned out a little blurry. Was a cold morning right before we left for camp, since I knew I wouldn't be here Sunday at all and didn't know what time Monday I would be home.

We got home Monday around 3 in the afternoon and the very first thing I did before even unloading our junk, was go check on the babies.

The nest had been attacked and was empty. I found one of the babies on the ground. The others were no were to be seen. We are thinking either a stray cat may have found them or maybe a raccoon.

Very sad day...

  3. Oh my, such a cute picture, but such an equally sad story. We have had robins on our porch in the past (I believe they were here 3 different years in a nest in a wreath on our front porch). We were very sad when they didn't come back last year for us to see. Fortunately nothing ever got into them. Poor robins.
