Rockin Robin


The Chick, Abby, and Jilly Beans discovered this baby robin that had fallen from a nest on Tuesday. Since then, Momma Jerri has been digging worms, buying worms, and feeding this little critter to try to keep it alive. I think he's already bonded with them because if he hears someone moving, he starts raising nine kinds of hell, with his little head thrown back, and beak wide open. He eats like there's no tomorrow, Jerri said today that he's already eaten his way through a $3.50 box of earthworms. (thank goodness there's a bait shop nearby)

She even wipes his little feathery butt when he poops.

They've named him but although they've told me his name twice, I've forgotten it again.

I think if I'd have been a bird I'd have been childless cause those birdy parents sure do have to work hard to feed their offspring.

Happy 4th of July!!!

Awwww look at that baby robin...how very kind of Jerri to be mothering it and feeding it. We have baby grackles in the tree near my bedroom window and every morning they wake me up with their crying to be fed...enough to drive me batty! lol xoxo

You probably know this already, but you can put the bird back in the nest and the parents will continue to look after it. I know this from personal experience..... personal recent experience.... like just last week recent.

Of course you have to watch the nest and check on the little one just to make sure they are feeding it.
