Fledglings

Since we are leaving at dark thirty in the morning for the first half of our drive to St.Paul, MN and won’t be back until next Tuesday, I thought it was a good idea to check the robin nest this morning. It’s a good thing I did or I would have missed them.  My last check on them was just three short days ago and they were all still in the nest. Today however I only found one lone fledgling.

I suppose it will be gone too by the time we return. I wonder if it’s the one we saved?

Isn’t it sweet?

I will miss checking on their progress.

This is the mama keeping a close eye on the remaining offspring.

In knitting progress we have reached the end of the foot section and I will be starting the gusset and heel tonight.

I found this “sandman” on my camera when I was uploading these pictures. LOL!

My next post will probably be from Minnesota at Shepherd’s Harvest. Smile

  1. I wonder if the mama & papa robin will lay another clutch in the same nest this year? Seems like they’d have enough time to raise a second brood….
