I totally didn’t have time to mention this last night, as I was getting my email issues fixed and packing for an early start this mroning, bu tthe baby robins are SO BIG!
The biggest one jumped or was pushed out of the nest in the afternoon. Emma said she heard the thump. We watched him flutter around the backyard around suppertime, and he found shelter in the meadow grass near us. There was a tense time when a neighburhood cat crawled across the field into view, but we hauled up a window right quickly and shooed him away.
Also, my neighbour came over to give me an armload of cut white peonies. We showed her the robins out the back window, and she wanted to know how we got anything done all day with them to watch.
