This Year's Robins

Well, the Jones family is back in West Virginia. We had a marvelous visit to Oregon, of course. I forgot to share about our family of robins this year before I left, so here it is.Every year for the past 4 years, I think, we've had a family of robins nested somewhere close to us. This is the family from this year. There were three babies and in this picture they are nearly grown to the point of leaving the nest. They're just squished in there!
The day after I took that picture above, the first bird left the nest. He flew down to the hood of our Suburban. It's absolutely incredible how they go from tiny, featherless, naked little things to this almost-full-grown-looking bird in a matter of days! Good-bye babies.
