Loud Mouth!


Every spring the Robins build several nests around our yard. For the past few years they have decided to set up shop on the lower branches of a tall spruce near our patio. Noticing the Mama Robin's busy flight to and fro, we suspected the eggs had hatched. Yep! This little baby is hungry. Another photo below shows them just before the "squeaky wheel" opened her mouth!

How fun to be able to see the goings on inside a nest! I always think of baby birds being all mouth and this picture proves it!

@Michelle - I had to stand on my tippy-toes and hold my camera up above my head and guess at the focus to get this shot. The mama was on the roof behind me squawking to beat the band! I hope to get another one before they all fly the coop :-)
